Oh Whistle and I'll Come to You

Wednesday,  7th December    2016   7.30 pm


A prying hand brings forth from centuries of sleep... a mysterious thing... it seems a whistle... and on it engraved... these ominous words... WHO'S THAT COMING

Professor Parkins takes a room at The Globe. Away from Cambridge, a peaceful coastal retreat with minimal interruption from the inn's young valet should be perfect for writing. But on taking a walk to explore the area, Parkins finds an ancient whistle with a soul-stirring inscription. Choosing to ignore its warning, the professor is soon to discover he is not alone…

'Oh, Whistle... is arguably the scariest story ever written. James was a macabre master of atmosphere and intimation.' The Guardian

Widely regarded as the father of the modern ghost story, M. R. James's eerie tale is re-imagined by David Rudkin, described by the Observer as 'Britain's greatest living dramatic poet' into this new Christmas chiller. This production marks David Rudkin's 80th year and the 80th anniversary of the death of M.R. James.
