The Last Seance & other supernatural tales (Torquay)

13th September 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

From the International Agatha Christie Festival website…

‘From behind the curtains there still sounded the terrible high long-drawn scream – such a scream as Raoul had never heard. It died away with a horrible kind of gurgle. Then there came the thud of a body falling…’

Allow storytellers from award-wining theatre company Scary Little Girls to thrill and chill you in this celebration of Agatha’s darker side! Expect tales of the macabre, the sinister, the surreal in this special event in the twelfth century Spanish Barn at Torre Abbey for the night of Friday 13th……

To coincide with the publication of a new collection which gathers together all of Christie’s spookiest and most macabre short stories, Scary Little Girls invite you for a cosy, intimate storytelling night to bring to life some of the most ghostly and chilling tales from Agatha Christie.  Acknowledged the world over as the undisputed Queen of Crime, in fact she dabbled in her early writing career with mysteries of a more unearthly kind – stories featuring fantastic psychic visions, spectres looming in the shadows, encounters with deities, eerie messages from the Other Side, even a man who switches bodies with a cat…

For this one-off special event, the first 50 tickets sold will each be able to collect an advance pre-release edition of The Last Séance & other supernatural tales due for release later in autumn 2019.
