Ghost Stories By Candlelight
HighTide (London, England)


A sea mist descends.
The hound howls.
Sodium streetlights twitch.
A falcon soars above, on the hunt.

Gather close for a candlelit evening of chilling, contemporary tales and haunting new folk music from the ‘Witch Counties’ of East Anglia. What happens when the ghosts of the past creep up on us today?

Ghost Stories by Candlelight is written by Kelly Jones, Shamser Sinha and Nicola Werenowska. With music and songs composed by Georgia Shackleton. Directed by Elayce Ismail.

A HighTide production, in association with Shakespeare’s Globe, Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds and Harlow Playhouse. Ghost Stories by Candlelight is supported by Arts Council England.
