Spine-Tingling Victorian Tales of Female Gothic

The Met presents thrilling and eerie stories from the Victorian era’s great female writers in Dyad Productions’ Female Gothic on Wednesday 20 November at 8pm.

.

An artist, gripped by the clutching fingers of a dead past; a scientist, defying nature in the dark realm of the senses; an expectant father, driven mad by creeping shadows… In the unquiet, stygian darkness between life and death, a woman tells chilling tales of the macabre and terrifying, illuminating the curious frailties of human nature.

 

Ghostly, grisly, gorgeous. Don’t miss it.” – Three Weeks

 

The Victorian fascination with tales of mystery and the supernatural created an enduring legacy of Gothic fiction. In this performance actress Rebecca Vaughan (I, Elizabeth) tells a selection of spine-tingling ghost stories by the likes of Mary Shelley, George Eliot, M E Braddon, Edith Wharton and Edith Nesbit.

 

Captures the real fear of the audience.” – British Theatre Guide
