The Canterville Ghost

About The Canterville Ghost

Oscar Wilde's classic ghost story comes to life with this one-man show starring Alan Sunter.

When The Otis Family move to Canterville Chase, they are shocked to discover that the house everyone told them was haunted has an actual ghost in it.

A clash of cultures ensues as the modern utilitarian Americans struggle with the ancient spiritual scrounger: the only question is... Who will this co-habitation force out first?​
