CASTING THE RUNES – Two Ghost Stories by M R James

9th November 2014 @ 5:00 pm – 6:45 pm


Over a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse. Following two highly successful visits to the Holbeck Underground Ballroom, Nunkie Theatre return with two more tales from M.R. James,  the master of the antiquarian ghost story.

This thrilling one-man show introduces a magic lanternist and occult historian in Casting the Runes, while in the neglected masterpiece The Residence at Whitminster, a dark shadow looms over a peaceful English church.

Written to perform for friends in the years leading up to WW1, this pair of classic ghost stories have lost none of their power to terrify and amuse.

There is a very limited capacity so to reserve a ticket please email  with the number of tickets you wish to reserve and  a contact telephone number.

Tickets will be “Pay What You Decide” which means you will pay the company AFTER the show.
