ADAPTED BY HUGH JANES FROM GHOST STORIES BY CHARLES DICKENS
A JOURNEY TO THE VERY EDGE OF TERROR
In an ancient, crumbling mansion, sheltering from the howling winds that tear across the surrounding desolate moorland, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever…
When a young book dealer, David Filde, is employed by a former associate of his uncle to catalogue an impressive library, he finds an incredible array of rare and antiquated books. But as a series of strange and unexplained events conspire to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror, and beyond, to discover the source of the ghostly night-time visitations…
David Robb is perhaps best known for playing Dr Clarkson in the first two series of the award-winning ITV drama series Downton Abbey and he returns in the third series this autumn. His many other TV roles have seen him star in I Claudius, The Flame Trees of Thika and Monarch of the Glen. Films include the Academy award-winning drama Young Victoria and Elizabeth – The Golden Age. David’s theatre credits include productions of Hamlet and King Lear at the Almeida Theatre.
James Roache has featured in TV dramas including ITV's Cold Blood and the feature Rise of the Footsoldier. His recent work includes a 20 episode story in Coronation Street as the deceptive rogue James Cunningham, on-screen grandson of Ken Barlow, who is played by his real life father William Roache. James will be making his stage debut in The Haunting.
