Haunted Child

£10-£28

"We thought you were dead. In many ways, this is worse."



A small boy is driving his mother to distraction – waking at night, hearing phantom noises and fixating on his absent father. When he glimpses a figure prowling the house at night, a shadow is cast which gradually strips away his childhood certainties.



This chilling and unsettling play asks demanding questions about the things we believe and their consequences.
