Whitby Amateur Dramatic Society present: Edith In The Dark
By Philip Meeks
Directed by
Dave Masters
Whitby Pavilion Theatre
9, 10, 11 November at 7.30pm
Celebrated children’s author Edith Nesbit (The Railway children, Five children and it) retreats to her attic writing room during one of her husband’s tiresome Christmas parties with her Maid and an unexpected, handsome party guest. As midnight swiftly approaches, Edith gives a reading of her work. Not one of her cherished children’s tales, but her terrifying early horror stories!
As the stories unfold it becomes clear all is not what it seems…..Someone in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.
“Edith in the Dark” is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.
“Highly original” - The Guardian
“A superbly written new play…a devilishly good idea” - The Stage
“A delicate balance of tongue-in-cheek and heart-in-mouth” - The Public 
Tickets: £8, £7 (Concessions)
