The Signal-Man and other Horrifying Tales: read by Dominic Gerrard
£18 per person
Suitable for ages 12+
Running time approximately 70 minutes.
Celebrate Halloween weekend with a dramatic reading of three of Dickens's most infamous ghost stories.
Dominic Gerrard returns to the Dickens Museum to perform The Signal-man; The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber and Captain Murderer.
As a boy, Dickens was terrified by the violent horror of Captain Murderer - a gruesome bedtime story, told by his nurse, who never spared him "one word of it". His interest in the supernatural fired from a young age, Dickens would go on to write some of the world's best loved ghost stories. In The Signal-Man a strange figure lurks in the mouth of an isolated tunnel, appearing each time before a tragedy on the line. Then in The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber a young traveller arrives at an inn, late one night, and learns the horrifying truth of what lurks there ...
Dominic's performance of A Christmas Carol has been described as "an exceptionally effective and powerful interpretation of the Christmas story" (The Stage ****) and "a worthy rival to Simon Callow's one man Carol" (Independent on Sunday).
