Two of Charles Dickens’ creepy tales – with a comic twist. Told on alternate days. Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm: a traveller encounters a ghostly chair and, in a deserted Edinburgh carriageworks, a tipsy reveller is spirited away by, well... spirits! Like The Woman in Black – but funnier, with fewer people! Adapted and directed by Gavin Robertson and performed by Nicholas Collett. From the team who brought you last year's hilarious detective mash-up, Done To Death, By Jove! 'Hilarious and quite brilliant!' (
