Ghost Town Tales

Friday 8 September 2023 at 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

 

An eve-of-Fringe special. One newspaper this year said that after 5pm, Wanstead becomes a ghost town. The Fringe will be disproving it all throughout September – but for one night only we’re going to revel in it. Author and director Patrick Marlowe – an award-winning writer of ghost stories – will be testing your nerve as he tells stories designed to frighten. Patrick, who now lives in Essex and is a celebrated theatrical director, grew up in Wanstead. As a chorister he would often sing in St Mary’s, the location of the famed crypt when he and his fellow choirboys would attempt to out-scare each other with spooky tales. Come along to the churchyard at dusk and see how strong your constitution is. Not for the faint of heart.
