Count Magnus & Number 13

“At first they hear nothing at all. Then they hear someone scream, just as if the most inside part of his soul was twisted out of him.” The ghost stories of M R James amuse and terrify as powerfully today as when they were first written over a century ago.

In a welcome return to The Heron Theatre, Robert Lloyd Parry brings two of these classic spinechillers to life, in this thrilling one-man show.

In Count Magnus a travel-writer’s over-inquisitiveness leads to a diabolical chase from darkest Sweden to rural Essex. Denmark is the setting for Number 13, where a hotel room with the famously unlucky number, conceals a ghastly, baffling secret..

Wilf is a farmer whose traditional methods have served him well all through his hard-working life, but when his younger brother-in-law Totty insists on introducing new technology in the form of a tractor into their family business, Wilf fears that the balance of nature will be upset. A family feud develops, and things get worse when a mysterious stranger appears, and the family fear that he is a spirit portentous of disasters.

National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal Court playwright Nick Darke’s funny and thought-provoking story has something important to say about our present concerns for the environment.

The Baker Street Ladies

Sherlock Holmes is not at home this evening, nor is his friend and colleague Dr. Watson. Holmes is rarely home unless knee-deep in a case (and unavailable anyway) or otherwise desperately waiting for a good one to come along. But on this particular evening, whatever the 'case', he is elsewhere. Four ladies, all with strong ties to the Great Detective, one after another, are drawn towards and into 221b Baker Street in the hope of finding him at home.

Lexi Wolfe previously performed at The Heron Theatre in ‘Mrs Oscar Wilde’ in 2017 and in ‘The Pendle Witch’ in 2018.

The Man Who Left The Titanic

On April 15th,1912 the Titanic slipped below the freezing waters of the Atlantic, yet J. Bruce Ismay, Managing Director of the White Star Line, stepped onto a lifeboat and sailed away from the stricken ship, sailed away from his passengers, sailed away from the cries and screams and tears. Did he only do what any of us might have done in the same circumstances, or should his actions that night condem his name to infamy?

This play has toured throughout the UK for a number of years to enormous acclaim.
