When Arthur Marsh inherits his aunt's house, he expects nothing more than a long-desired financial stability.

But the ancient ebony frame on an otherwise unremarkable picture exerts a strange attraction on the young man, and soon his personality begins to change. An ancient secret comes to light, and with it a chance at salvation, but also of fire and death...

A special anniversary rehearsed reading of a new play by the 2019 Bruntwood Award longlisted and 2021 Through The Mill Award shortlisted writer, Oliver Giggins, based on several of classic ghost stories by the author of Five Children & It and The Railway Children.

**Please note this event is a rehearsed reading/ work in progress performance.**
