Buy Tickets M R James Ghost Stories

Presented by Nunkie
Performed by Robert Lloyd Parry

Duration: approx 1 hour 40 minutes (includes 20 minute interval)

More than a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse.
Nunkie returns with four of his most eerie and entertaining stories told over two nights.

Fri 14 Feb: A tale of nocturnal horror on the Suffolk coast, Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad is considered by many to be James’s masterpiece. It is beautifully complemented by The Ash Tree, a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations.

Sat 15 Feb: In Canon Alberic’s Scrap-book, a young Cambridge antiquary discovers the devil in the details of an old book in a medieval town in the French Pyrenees.The Mezzotint finds a ghoulish revenge enacted within a work of art, before the helpless eyes of a museum curator in Oxford.

'A pleasing reminder that the spokenword can be as spine-chilling as anything in the cinema' The Daily Mail

Robert Lloyd Parry recently featured on a BBC documentary about M R James performing excerpts of his stories - to find out more and watch some web exclusive clips click here.
