NIGHT TERRORS – The Ghost Stories of E F Benson
Thu 28 Oct 2021
Directed by Gareth Armstrong
Music by Simon Slater
This is a spine-tingling evening of three tales of the supernatural from E.F. Benson’s brilliant collection of ghost stories, Night Terrors. With masterful storytelling the award-winning actor Gerard Logan, Night Terrors will transport you to a darker, more sinister world of the unexpected and the unexplainable.
The three stories ('The Dance', 'In The Tube' and 'The Confession of Charles Linkworth'), are dramatic, haunting and hugely memorable.
Gerard Logan won The Stage Best Solo Performer of the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Award for his acclaimed performance in Gareth Armstrong’s production of Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece. He won the Best Actor award at the 2014 Buxton Fringe Festival, and was nominated for the Michael MacLiammoir Award for Best Male Performance at the 2016 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival for his performance in Wilde Without the Boy.
Gareth Armstrong has developed and directed many successful solo shows, including his own award-winning Shylock.
Night Terrors is also underscored by a beautiful, original and specially-commissioned score by the award-winning RSC composer, Simon Slater.
