Edith in the Dark

Celebrated children's author Edith Nesbit retreats to her attic writing room to escape her husband's annual Christmas party. Planning to seduce an uninvited guest, she ends up reading her extraordinary Tales of Terror to the young man, and her housekeeper. But alls not what it seems... Featuring monstrous tales of lost love, bitter revenge and vampire plants, Nesbit's spine-tingling ghost stories come to life in this thrilling new drama by Fringe First award-winning Philip Meeks. 'Highly original' (Guardian). 'A superbly written play ... a devilishly good idea' (Stage). 'A delicate balance of tongue-in-cheek and heart-in-mouth' (ThePublicReviews.co.uk).
