TWO GHOST STORIES BY M R JAMES • PERFORMED BY R M LLOYD PARRY

In Casting the Runes we meet the unforgettable ‘Abbot of Lufford, ’ Mr. Karswell – magic lanternist, historian of the occult, and scourge of the academic establishment. The story is perhaps best known for being the source for the classic 1950s horror film ‘Night of the Demon.’

It is partnered here by one of James’s most neglected masterpieces: The Residence at Whitminster in which a dark shadow is cast over the precinct of a peaceful English church…

‘Remarkable. Lloyd Parry is a natural storyteller, well able to hold, amuse and frighten his audience.’- The Stage

Performance lasts approx. 100 minutes including interval.
