Female Gothic

Female Gothic
Dyad Productions

From the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, Orlando, Christmas Gothic and The Time Machine.

In the dark between life and death, a haunted woman tells strange and terrifying tales; eerie stories, dusty and forgotten. Until now.

It’s the Hallowe’en season, so come along and be thrilled by three lost gothic spine-tinglers from the great Victorian female writers.

Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award. Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan (Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, I, Elizabeth, Austen’s Women). Directed by Olivier Award Winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe).

 

★★★★★ ’A macabre masterpiece. Ghostly, grisly and gorgeous. Don’t miss it’ (Three Weeks)

★★★★★ ‘A masterclass in storytelling. Chilling, haunting, dazzling’ (Hairline)

★★★★ ‘Holds the audience in the palm of its hand… a near perfect piece of theatre’ (The Scotsman)

★★★★ ‘Wonderfully eerie… and manages to capture that most intangible of theatre goals, the real fear of the audience.’ (British Theatre Guide)
