Casting the Runes

Two stories by M R James

Performed by Robert Lloyd Parry

Montague Rhodes James [1862 – 1936] wrote his ghost stories to perform to friends in the years leading up to WW1. Today they have lost nothing of their power to terrify and amuse. Nunkie Theatre Company returns with two more of James’s very best, in another thrilling one-man show – the scarcely-believable fifth instalment of The M R James Trilogy.

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…

Performance takes place in the Library. Strictly limited places available.

Doors open at 7pm, bar available until performance starts at 7.30pm.
