"Whether you believe in ghosts or not, this spooky-tacular play serves thrills and chills in all the right places."
Showing in the heart of London, this production of The Enfield Haunting has been Directed by Angus Jackson and is currently haunting the Ambassadors Theatre until 2nd March. It’s a cosy, atmospheric theatre and what it lacks in leg room it certainly makes up for in charm.
The set is the inside of a dingy house with dark, dismal decor. The walls have been painted a musty greenish-grey and the rest of the interior is just as ominous with shabby lounge furniture, a plain dining table and a rickety staircase leading up to a second floor. Upstairs holds three beds where the entire family sleep, or more accurately, attempt to sleep.
The amusing script, written by Paul Unwin, injected unexpected comedy into an otherwise eerie and intense drama. Unwin’s unique writing in this short one act play included unanticipated turns and twists, engrossing the audience and kept us curious till the end. We are taken back in time to the 70s where it is believed a family were being tortured by supernatural entity.
