Cat & the Canary image

As midnight strikes, a storm rages over the wilds of Bodmin Moor. The surviving descendants of the long-deceased Cyrus West have gathered in his remote mansion to discover which of them is the chosen heir to his fortune. As the wind rattles the house, so does news that the most dangerous inmate from the nearby asylum is on the run. Menace lurks around every corner and nothing is what it seems…
The Cat and the Canary has woven its macabre fascination for over 100 years. Carl Grose adapts John Willard’s fabulous period piece into a deliciously terrifying and terrifyingly funny tale that will have you on the edge – or possibly right out – of your seat.
A co-production with Told by an Idiot, renowned for their unique visual flair and playfully inventive storytelling including Charlie and Stan (Minerva 2020), directed by their Artistic Director, Paul Hunter.
The cast includes Will Merrick (Silo, Barbie, About Time, Skins, Dead Pixels).
Disclaimer: those of a nervous disposition, allergic to terror and frights and bumps in the night, should attend with caution…
