About the Show/Event
Information for Ghost Stories for Christmas - A Warning to the Curious: Two Ghost Stories by M R James at Old Red Lion, Inner London (Play). James first performed them to friends at Christmas in King's College, Cambridge. Now, over a century after their first publication, Nunkie Theatre Company have bought two of the eeriest and most entertaining of these masterpieces back to life in a gripping one-man show. Lost Hearts was among the first stories the author wrote and it offers one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney. It is paired here with perhaps James's most poignant and personal work: A Warning to the Curious, in which a young archaeologist is haunted and hunted by the guardian of an ancient treasure.
