A selection of classic Ghost stories, in a thrilling new adaptation by Theatrical Niche Ltd.


Let the foremost writers of all time pin you to your seat this Autumn, as Theatrical Niche tour age-old ghost stories with a modern kick. Literary genius from the likes of Bram Stoker, Edgar Allen Poe and M. R. James will be showcased in full technicolour, using electrifying physical theatre and blood-curdling storytelling techniques.

The most terrifying of tales have been hand-selected in an artfully choreographed production to both scintillate and terrify. In the run up to Halloween, we bring you STILL THE BEATING OF MY HEART; classic tales from throughout our history and heritage, brought to you in a uniquely creepy show that will have you looking over their shoulders until All Saints Day.

Witness the little-told but beautifully crafted stories from the UK and beyond in this brilliant mixture of theatre-craft and pure scare-mongering. New adaptations by both Knapton and Twigg revitalise the work for a modern audience whilst maintaining the undeniable horror at their very core. We take the audience further into a world of darkness and lost souls utilising Knapton’s unique direction and exquisite physical theatre, showcasing leading acting talent from London.

STILL THE BEATING OF MY HEART is the sixth tour for Theatrical Niche Ltd, following on from our critically acclaimed version of Blood Wedding, in conjunction with Arts Council England.
