‘Sometimes the scariest stories are the ones we tell ourselves’
Ghosts is a one-person storytelling theatre piece for adults. Several different stories spanning childhood fears to the anxieties of adulthood are woven together with Greek myths and ghostly tales to create a uniquely engaging, frightening and relatable experience.
Mysterious projections and soundscapes carry the audience seamlessly from claustrophobic bedrooms to the vast halls of Hades with horror and heartbreak in between.
