Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile!
Throughout his illustrious writing career, Charles Dickens often turned his hand to fashioning short pieces of ghostly fiction. While all his supernatural tales aim to send a shiver down the spine, they are not without the usual traits of Dickens’ flamboyant style: his subtle wit, biting irony, humorous incidents and moral observations. Featuring two of Dickens’ creepy tales – with a comic twist. A traveler encounters a ghostly chair, and in a deserted Edinburgh carriageworks, a tipsy reveler is spirited away by…well…spirits! Like “The Woman in Black” – but funnier, with fewer people!

Distinguished actors and playwrights, Gavin Robertson and Nicholas Collett made their REP debut as part of the Escape to Create artist residency in early 2016. Their powerful performance of The Six-Sided Man garnered rave reviews and proved to be world-class theatre at its finest. After such a compelling introduction, Gavin and Nic made their return to Seaside in the fall of 2016 and 2017continuing to wow audiences with more captivating storytelling and sensational performances. The iconic duo will once again take to The REP stage this winter with their masterful performances of Bond: An Unauthorized Parody, The Ghost Of A Smile, and the two-man show Done To Death, By Jove!
