Night Terrors – The Ghost Stories of E F Benson

There are no scheduled instances of Night Terrors – The Ghost Stories of E F Benson. You can view similar events below.

This is a spine-tingling evening of three tales of the supernatural from E F Benson’s brilliant collection of ghost stories, Night Terrors.

With masterful storytelling from the award winning actor Gerard Logan, Night Terrors will transport you to a darker, more sinister world of the unexpected and the unexplainable.

The three stories (The Dance, In The Tube and The Confession of Charles Linkworth), are dramatic, haunting and hugely memorable.

'Logan is astounding... He takes a strong script and flies it to the stars' ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festival 2016

'Watching Logan work is like being privy to a wonder of nature and remains with you... A true masterpiece of solo performance' ★★★★★ The Edinburgh Guide - Edinburgh Festival 2015

Gerard Logan won The Stage Best Solo Performer of the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Award for his acclaimed performance in Gareth Armstrong’s production of Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece. He won the Best Actor award at the 2014 Buxton Fringe Festival and was nominated for the Michael MacLiammoir Award for Best Male Performance at the 2016 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival for his performance in
Wilde Without the Boy.

Gareth Armstrong has developed and directed many successful solo shows, including his own award winning Shylock.

Night Terrors is also underscored by a beautiful, original and specially commissioned score by the award winning RSC composer, Simon Slater.

Daytime Deewane

It’s 1997 and London is about to have its last daytime rave.

The end of an era is approaching. British South Asians flock for their last taste of rebellion. Among them are cousins Farhan and Sadiq. Both very different. Both escaping something. Both trying to decide what it means to be British and Pakistani, to be Muslim and a man – and they’ve got until 6pm to figure it out.

Inspired by the daytime raves of 1990s British Asian culture, Daytime Deewane explores the beauty and struggle of living with a multi-cultural identity as a teenager. Featuring a DJ mix merging soundscapes, dance music and spoken word, this immersive new show is an exhilarating gig theatre adventure.

Daytime Deewane, by Azan Ahmed, is the latest production from Half Moon, the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company, winner of the 2019 and 2018 Offies Award (Off West End Theatre) for Best Production for Young People Age 13+ (Crowded and What Once Was Ours).

Run time 60 mins

Content Warning: Daytime Deewane includes mild references to self-harm. As part of depicting the experience of British South Asians in the 1990s, at times characters in the play refer to language which is racially offensive.
