Casting the Runes
Directed by Robert Soulsby-Smith

You're invited to the edge of your seat...into the darkest
corners of the night. Our advice? Don't come alone...

Edward Dunning, academic expert in the occult, has recently rejected
a paper by a man named Karswell. Things take a dark turn for
Dunning when he is passed a mysterious strip of paper covered
in runic lettering. With the help of a new acquaintance,
Dunning must uncover the secret of the runes before the
dark presence at his heels finally catches up with him...

Our adaptation of M.R. James' classic thriller features just
two performers, one handmade puppet and a haunting
soundtrack of original music. With minimal set and
innovative design, we hope to present you with a
chilling and entertaining hour of theatre.
