The Haunting of Exham Priory


The play that I have written will be starting a national tour in the autumn with the Rumpus Theatre Company. Opening night will be at The Hawth Theatre in Crawley on 4th October 2016.

‘The Haunting of Exham Priory’ is a Gothic Horror based on the classic short story ‘The Rats in the Walls’ by early 20th century horror writer HP Lovecraft.
For those not familiar with the story, set in the 1920s, it’s the tale of Mr Delapore, an American business man who returns to England to restore his long abandoned family home, Exham Priory. With the aid of his friend Captain Norrys he attempts to uncover why the Priory is hated and feared by the locals, what caused his ancestors to abandon the house 300 years ago and just what it is in the walls that so unsettles his cats…

So if you’re a fan of Lovecraft or just feel like a night of spine-tingling horror at your local theatre then take a look at the tour venues and dates below.
