A rip roaring, thunder soaked gothic farce!

A criticial and public hit at The Edinburgh Festival, The Curse of Elizabeth Faulkner takes the audience from the sand blasted foothills of Peru to the haunted back streets of Edwardian London.  Part Grand Guignol, part One Man Two Guvnors.

This story, told for the first time and by the kind permissions of the Faulkner and Thorndike Estates, is the true and terrifying tale of a foredoomed young gentleman who convinces an impoverished undertaker to dig up his great grandmother, in order to rid himself of a terrible and somewhat expensive, family curse. 

A blistering thrill ride through old England and over dead Empires.  Also included is a very useful tip on how to avoid an exploding pancreas, how not to speak to dead people, and a rather interesting fact about the hill tribes of the South Pacific. 

★★★★★ 'A brilliant combination of horror and comedy. In short, I absolutely loved it' Broadway Baby 

 'A smart comedy…bashing out the gags at a commendably high rate' The Scotsman 

 ★★★★★ 'A complete cracker of a show that deserves a sell out audience everytime' Black Diamond FM

The cast includes Mr. Joshua Haberfield as the cursed hero Faulkner, the dashing and over excited undertaker Thorndike played by Mr. Neil Henry, the delicate yet deadly Miss Harriette Sym as Miss Francis and Mr. Anil Desai completes the cast as the mysterious and conflicted Peruvian of no fixed abode.

Directed by his malevolence Anthony Coleridge.  Scenic Design by the undead Mr. Martin Thomas, Costumes and props by mummified Miss. Charlie Gardner, Stage Manager Mr. Neil ‘the gouger’ Gray, Composer Mr. Chris ‘the butcher’ Bartholomew, demonic Assistant director Mr. Simon Paris. And of course our author the diabolical Mr. Tim Downie.
