A Warning to the Curious - T701284866Over a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse. This gripping one man show retells two of the eeriest. 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. The English seaside has never looked so menacing. Approx. running time: 1hr 45mins (includes 20min interval)Company Nunkie Theatre.
