Haunted: Fictional Ghost Story Readings 2022

Northumberland’s ‘Border Readers’ will be making a welcome return to the Dennis Kilgallon Gallery ‘The Gallery in the Hills’ at Whitfield on Saturday 19th November with another fabulous selection of classic, modern and contemporary ghost stories. An inclusive intimate listening experience for anyone aged 10 – 100 is promised, so come and join us – If you dare!

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde

When a golden girl can win prayer from out the lips of sin… then shall all the house be still, And peace come to Canterville’

A stately home’s Elizabethan ghost wages war on the sceptical American family who are its new owners. Only the daughter’s love and innocence can resolve matters. Wilde’s masterful tale blends gothic goings on with comedy & romance.

The Demon Loverby Elizabeth Bowen

Wherever he may be waiting, I shall not know him. You have no time to run from a face you do not expect.’

Set in a bomb damaged suburb in the wake of the London blitz this superbly atmospheric narrative is a chilling study of coercion from beyond the grave.

Teeth and Hair by Christine Poulson

A row of teeth like the nodules of a spine lay down the centre of the mattress. She gasped and shut her eyes. When she opened them they weren’t teeth. They were pearls, pearl buttons, like the ones torn from the wedding dress…’

Live in nanny Nell is haunted by the late mother of the young girl she’s caring for over the long summer holidays… A finely crafted contemporary horror from the author of Safe as Houses, whichfeatured in a previous ‘Haunted’ tour.

The Border Readers are regionally based professional actors who give themed literary readings in arts and community venues, produced by Stephen Tomlin.
