Monday 25 March at 7.45pm

Doors open at 7.00pm

Patch welcomes back Robert Lloyd Parry to entertain and enchant us with his spellbinding telling of M R James tales that chill and enthrall.

Montague Rhodes James wrote his ghost stories to perform to friends in the years leading up to WW1. Today they have lost none of their power to terrify and amuse. Now Nunkie Theatre Company returns to the Commoration Hall with two of James’s very best, in another thrilling one-man show.

In Casting the Runes we meet the unforgettable ‘Abbot of Lufford,’ Mr. Karswell: magic lanternist, historian of the occult, and scourge of the academic establishment. The story is perhaps best known for being the source for the classic 1950s horror film ‘Night of the Demon.’

It is partnered here by one of James’s most neglected masterpieces: The Residence at Whitminster in which a dark shadow is cast over the precinct of a peaceful English church…

“Storytelling at its best…” The Stage

Robert Lloyd Parry has spent the last decade entertaining audiences with his candlelit retellings of classic fantasy tales. He was seen recently on BBC1 playing the part of M R James in Mark Gatiss’s biographical documentary, ‘Ghost Writer’.
