About This Show

Based on a story by Charles Dickens. A curious traveller encounters a lonely, isolated worker in a dark and dismal railway cutting. The man appears strangely troubled; is it his isolation and the tedium of his job that is playing with his mind? Or is there a presence haunting the gloom around the danger light and the black mouth of that oppressive and forbidding tunnel?

In a Creation first, we’ll be performing at the stunning Wesley Memorial Church, right in the centre of Oxford on New Inn Hall Street. The show promises to be a spookily atmospheric retelling of Dickens’ semi-autobiographical ghost story. Adapted and Directed by Jonathan Holloway (whose productions for Creation include 1984, Brave New World and Don Quixote) the show will deliver a startling and deliciously disconcerting experience that is both literate and a crowd pleaser characterised by committed performances and genuinely chilling images. (We urge caution regarding under 10’s, who may find some of the words and images challenging).

This event takes place at Wesley Memorial Church, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford OX1 2DH
