Ghosts In The Attic – a rehearsed/staged reading
Saturday 14th August 7.30pm

Written and Directed by Simon Beyer
(The theatre's very own General Manager)

When the lives of three women are brought together in the gloom of an attic in an old Victorian house, their journeys of discovery into the stories amongst the bric-a-brac uncover a past of memories and secrets that have remained hidden for decades: stirring up more than just stories about a past best left forgotten.
