Anna Fleischle’s scenic design succeeds in turning the house into one of the production’s main characters. At its outset, the play is a frightening theatrical experience, but one that is also invested in metaphysical questions of belief and our need to project our fears, our loss, our loves, and our frustrations onto a spectral presence. Me and Liz were too scared to talk about it initially, but when we finally did, we realised that we were both having similar experiences. Norwich Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two are part of Norwich Theatre, the operating name of Theatre Royal (Norwich) Trust Limited.

Over the course of the evening, there are several revelations for all the characters and one character reveals they're experiencing paranormal activity in their new house. What is IS, is a decent little shocker/thriller more along the lines of Sleuth or Deathtrap - and that's fine.

This is a simple, subtle (A Christmas Carol or horror story it is not) but beautifully written modern play, being little more than four people arguing in a room for a couple of hours, but it was great to re-live the sense of dread that we experienced in the theatre, not knowing what might happen at any moment.Written by Danny Robins is pretty damn good and is simplistic in it's approach but impactful on it's conclusion.

Based in the UK and the USA, we’ve been serving the online theatre community since the last century. It provides rich opportunities for any drama group wanting to make things go bump in the night - and their audiences scream. The show was also nominated for four WhatsOnStage Awards, and won Best New Play, Best Actress for Allen and Best Supporting Actor for Wood. Jenny and Sam have just moved into their new house with baby Phoebe and have invited Lauren and Ben round for housewarming dinner. Sam reveals that his work trip was to a rural island where he lost his phone, and was unable to contact Jenny leaving her and daughter Phoebe alone in the house.

The jump scares and Chris Fisher’s impressive if underused illusions aside, this is intriguing rather than terrifying. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

SAM gets to the point in the story where the family have tiptoed into the cave and spotted something in the dark… JENNY turns the monitor off.LAUREN is standing in the kitchen, holding a glass of wine and inexpertly poking a pan of risotto with a wooden spoon. The most rounded performance comes from Charlene Boyd (most recently seen in the Lyceum’s EdFringe revival of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart) as Lauren, who manages to evoke real sympathy, and suggest an element of jeopardy that is not always present otherwise. It provides rich opportunities for any drama group wanting to make things go bump in the night – and their audiences scream. So much of what makes an effective scare is dependent on sound — what we hear, what we don't, pregnant pauses, and things that go bump in the night. The couple hosts a dinner party for Lauren, an old university friend of Sam's, and Ben, her new boyfriend who has a belief in the supernatural.

And now, in an unlikely, or inspired piece of casting, the latest cast at the Lyric Theatre includes none other than Cheryl, yes Cheryl of Girls Aloud fame! These (courtesy of screaming foxes) do not really arise from the plot or characters and could be seen as somewhat unearned. balances the elements of character and atmosphere within a solidly constructed story that builds to a satisfying conclusion.Anna Fleischle’s set, an apparently traditional evocation of a house lacking its fourth wall, is a little lost in the huge expanse of the Festival Theatre stage.
