Occult Entertainers Suzanne and Arthur Bishop are attempting a new start on the lecture circuit. But tonight, the lecture is disrupted by strange occurrences as their past returns to haunt them. Tonight, all is not what it seems. And the presence they have unleashed is not ready to rest...


Based on real life accounts of early New Zealand hauntings, this spine chilling production will make you question every shadow and sleep with the lights on.


“Impeccable timing from all concerned elevates the production to that rarely achieved beast, successful recreation of the supernatural in live theatre. Lizzie Tollemache and David Ladderman are outstanding in their roles...

Their work is subtle and detailed, delivered with complete authority and immediacy... Certainly a theatrical triumph whose impact satisfies that deeper need for a tale of the inexplicable.”



“Sitting frozen in my seat, my heart beating faster and faster,

I held tight to my breath in case a scream escaped my mouth."
