First look production images are released for Oscar Wilde’s uproarious vaudeville spectacular The Canterville Ghost which is at the Southwark Playhouse this autumn, as part of a wider UK Tour.
The gloriously ghoulish show, directed by Olivia Jacobs, is part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the award-winning theatre company Tall Stories.
The Canterville Ghost features four valiant vaudevillians – a mysterious magician, a crazy comedian, a spirited psychic and their charismatic compere – with original music played live on stage.
These extraordinary entertainers will bring their sensational variety acts to the stage – woven into Oscar Wilde’s spooky story of the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, who vanished without a trace 300 years ago.
When the Otis family move into Canterville Hall, they’re warned about the fearsome ghost that stalks its corridors. But the Otis family are a thoroughly modern bunch – has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?
The Canterville Ghost is at Southwark Playhouse until Saturday 5th November 2022
