Ghost Story Room 13 Comes To The Barn Theatre

Ghost story to be staged at Cirencester theatre in time for Halloween

Brand new play Room 13, will be having its premiere at the Barn Theatre in Cirencester this autumn.

The show by Duncan Abel and Rachel Wagstaff is a new modern-day ghost story inspired by the stories of M.R. James.

In a lonely hotel, four strangers are forced to spend the night in Room 13. Bearing the weight of their own grief, shame and darkness, they come to realise that Room 13 has secrets of its own. As the four solitary souls develop unexpected bonds, they each share something from their past that still haunts them – stories of a painting that conceals a horrific secret; a macabre song that whispers in the depths of night, and children’s voices that echo from a forgotten well. As the veil between the present and the past, the living and the dead, becomes frayed, the new companions will have to face their darkest fears if they are ever to escape Room 13.

The full casting and creative team are to be announced shortly.

There’s nothing like a cracking supernatural piece of live theatre, especially over Halloween, so early booking is highly recommended.

Room 13 will be at Barn Theatre from 28 September – 09 November 2024.
