The Watch House

Fri 1 Nov
- Sat 2 Nov
Doors: 19.00Show: 19.30

Once a coastguard station renowned for daring rescues, the old Watch House is now all but abandoned. Just like Anne, dumped here while her parents sort their divorce. She’s never felt more alone. But she isn’t…

Sunk deep in the past is a secret which threatens everything. Only Anne can stop it. Catapulted on an adventure through graveyards, discos and shipwrecks, she and her eccentric crew must uncover the truth before it’s too late.

Olivier Award-winners Papatango present a funny, thrilling adaptation of Robert Westall’s classic ghost story.
