Directed by Adam Morley

“Highly original” THE GUARDIAN

“A delicate balance of tongue-in-cheek and heart-in-mouth” THE PUBLIC REVIEWS
Baroque Theatre Company presents this chilling journey into the disturbing, dark and supernatural imaginings of celebrated children's author Edith Nesbit. (The Railway Children, Five Children and It).
One night in her attic writing room with her housekeeper and a mysterious guest she reads them a story, not one of her cherished children’s tales, but one of her terrifying early horror stories. As the tale unfolds it becomes clear all is not what it seems…Someone in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.
Edith in the Dark is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.
Tickets are £10 (£12 on the door) and are available online, The Old Town Hall and OFS.
