Peterborough Mask Theatre present: Edith in The Dark by Phillip Meeks
Celebrated children’s author Edith Nesbit (The Railway Children, Five Children & It) retreats to her attic writing room during one of her husband’s tiresome parties with her housekeeper and an unexpected, handsome party guest.
As midnight swiftly approaches, Edith gives a reading of her work. Not one of her cherished children’s tales, but her terrifying early horror stories. As the stories unfold it becomes clear all is not what it seems…someone in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.
Edith in the Dark is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.
This amateur production of “Edith In The Dark” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Limited
See the show from December 6th - 8th 2018 at The Undercroft at Serpentine Green, Peterborough.
