'There's a joy in being scared - a thrill.'
'The most talked about
The Woman in Black.'
There's going to be a fair bit of posting and news coming up about the tour, so this post will be the main 'go to' post that will contain as much relevant info as possible about the production and where it will turn up next.
The journey of the play so far has been fabulous. Winning The Salford Star's award for The Best Play of 2017, gaining fresh new reviews from each theatre run, breaking house records, selling out two weeks before we arrived in London and getting wonderful responses from all our audiences, some of whom have now seen the play 3 or 4 times, each time bringing new faces so that they in turn can watch their reactions to the play...the fear is infectious.
Why Should You See The Haunting of Blaine Manor?
'A brilliant story,
really well told.'
The link below will take you to reviews by established theatre critics.
The following link will bring you to a page filled with the stunning photography of Karen McBride and Shay Rowan, the digital design work and photography of Darren McGinn and myself talking about why I wrote The Haunting of Blaine Manor.
'I felt like there was something in the room throughout...truly gave me the scare.'
1950s Classic B&W Movie Trailer
As you will find out elsewhere, when writing the play I wanted to create the feeling of watching an old black and white film set in a haunted house...so here's a cheeky trailer to capture that feel...nowhere near as good as the quite brilliant trailer that Darren McGinn created (above) with the original music and sound effects of Justin Wetherill.
With the house record setting sell out of the show at Buxton Festival it's probably a good idea to book ahead for this show - and we sold out London 2 weeks before we got there. Links are below where tickets are on sale for the show...

'There is murder here,
there is horror, there is the supernatural...but there's also a detective story.'
As you're watching - as it all becomes too much to bear - close your eyes, take hold of the person next to you and just keep saying to yourself 'It's only a play...it's only a play...'
Come and join us for a night you will never forget.
