Box Tale Soup to Return to Brighton Fringe With CASTING THE RUNES, May 4-June 1

Following on from the success of their Northanger Abbey and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - both brought to life with just two performers, a vintage trunk and a troupe of puppets - award winning Box Tale Soup want to chill your heart this time, not warm it, as they turn their imaginative eye to the classic ghost stories of English author M.R.James. Their new show, Casting the Runes, is a fresh take on the writer's most famous story, following scholar and sceptic Edward Dunning, whose life becomes a waking nightmare when he crosses paths with the enigmatic Mr. Karswell. In a desperate race for survival, Dunning must uncover the truth before Karswell's mysterious powers claim another victim.

Casting the Runes is a brand new adaptation written by the company, featuring an original soundtrack created for the show and Box Tale Soup's signature blend of handmade props, puppetry and innovative theatre. Performers Noel and Antonia have appeared in shows such as Doctor Who, HBO's Game of Thrones, BBC's The Hour and CBBC's Mission 2110, and are now very proud to return to Brighton Fringe with their company's new work.

Casting the Runes will run May 4, 25, 26, and June 1 at 8:00pm at The Burrow at The Warren. Tickets are £9.50 / £8.00 and can be purchased from Brighton Fringe at or by calling 01273 917272 or from The Warren at or by calling 07800 983290.

Formed in 2011, Box Tale Soup aims to create genuinely fresh interpretations of classic works and financially viable theatre. Casting the Runes continues this practice, creating unique, imaginative theatre that uses minimal resources to maximum effect.
