Adapted by Brian Mitchell (The Ministry of Biscuits)
& Joseph Nixon (The Shark is Broken)
In 1840, Thomas Ingoldsby, of Tappington Manor, Kent, inherited a trunk full of antique manuscripts detailing numerous accounts of saints and spectres, monsters and witches, adultery, murder and revenge, of possessed wigs and haunted clocks, from Canterbury to Cleeves, from Romney Marsh to the Rhine, from the Weald to Wales. They were written in rollicking, colourful, rumbustious verse, but don’t be misled – every single word of them was true. Or his name wasn’t Thomas Ingoldsby.
Now the award-winning Foundry Group, the company behind touring hits Those Magnificent Men and Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks, brings the best-loved of these legends to grisly, ghoulish, hilarious life in this new adaptation by acclaimed playwrights Brian Mitchell (co-writer and composer of The Ministry of Biscuits) & Joseph Nixon (co-writer of Edinburgh smash hit The Shark is Broken) in a lively performance by Mitchell and Radio 4 Regular David Mounfield (Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show).
