“…I gathered that what he chiefly
This Christmas, Robert Lloyd Parry brings a seasonal shiver to London, with his retelling
of two of the greatest tales by M R James, the master of the English ghost story.
Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad – a tale of nocturnal
horror on the Suffolk coast – is considered by many to be the author’s masterpiece. It is beautifully complemented
here by The Ash Tree, a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations.
Every Christmas, M R James (1862 -1936) would write and perform new tales, to entertain
friends in his rooms in King’s College, Cambridge. A century later, these tales still have the power to terrify
and amuse. This unique interpretation gives seasonal theatregoers the opportunity to experience these eerie masterpieces
in the manner in which they were originally enjoyed – as ghostly confections, told to a rapt audience.
"Oh, Whistle… is the sequel to Nunkie Theatre Company's critically
acclaimed one-man show A Pleasing Terror, which toured the UK, USA and Ireland in 2006 / 2007. It has recently been
awarded The Dracula Society’s prestigious Hamilton Deane Award.
"Lloyd Parry restores the charm and pleasure of the original tales with his excellent
and convincing storytelling”.
