2020 was the 150th Anniversary of the death of Charles Dickens, so to celebrate, Nicholas Collett and Gavin Robertson teamed up once again ("Done To Death, By Jove!", "Your Bard", "BOND", "Nelson", Spitfire Solo") to bring you two ghost stories - with a comic twist!


Interrupted (of course) by the global pandemic, we can now offer this full-length show PLUS an interval: "Woman In Black" meets "The 39 Steps" - but funnier - in a spine-tingling show of storytelling and theatrical inventiveness...

Tales with a shiver - and a smile... one inside a haunted Inn ("The Queer Chair"), the other set in Edinburgh ("The Ghosts of The Mail") ...

Two yarns that will chill - and charm!


Adapted, Designed and Directed by

Gavin Robertson

Performed by Nicholas Collett


Available for dates through 2024 to Autumn 2025...


Pictures of Nicholas Collett by Peter Mould

"The atmosphere of this story is vividly portrayed, thanks in large part to the acting skills of Nicholas Collett. Collett seamlessly transitions into roles as varied as the maid, the widow, and an elderly and wizened piece of furniture. The performance is assured and engaging throughout.

The production doesn’t skimp on the atmospheric details, either. Lighting and sound effects are used well to craft various scenes – a storm brewing, a warm fireplace, and a bedroom emanating ghostly vibes. Gavin Robertson’s adaptation and direction delivers an engaging narrative supported by fast-paced scene changes and the odd sprinkle of humour".


EXCELLENT SHOW - FringeReview - August 2023

"A winning curative formula... a cure for your tired, for your poor Fringe-going masses yearning to see tip-top quality.

Come for the writing. Stay for the performance. Get your frock coats on and go see this!"
