Ghost Stories by M.R. James - A Warning to the Curious

Nunkie Theatre Company have brought two of the eeriest and most entertaining back to life in this gripping, candlelit one-man show at Otley Hall. 

M R James first wrote his ghost stories to perform to friends in Kings College Cambridge in the year leading up to World War One. The ghost stories of M R James amuse and terrify as powerfully today as when they were first written over a century after their first publication.

A Warning to the Curious - Two Ghost Stories by M R James

Lost Hearts was among the first stories the author wrote and it offers one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney. It is paired here with perhaps James’s most poignant and personal work: A Warning to the Curious, in which a young archaeologist is haunted and hunted by the guardian of an ancient treasure. 

The English seaside has never looked so menacing.

Performer Robert Lloyd Parry has been touring several shows based on the works of M R James around the country for a decade and he appeared as the author in Mark Gatiss’s acclaimed BBC Documentary: “M R James: Ghost Writer.”
