‘Seance: Conversations in the Dark’
by Christopher Howell
29 and 30 October, 2019
Nightmares and phantom legends form the backdrop of this new interactive seance show presented in one of London’s most haunting venues. The participants in each audience invite the spirits into the space to share their wisdom, exorcise their demons or complete their unfinished business.
Driven by memories of night terrors as a boy, Christopher Howell’s seance takes a haunting look at what lures us to seances. As we flirt with the supernatural, do we seek comfort in reaching out to loved ones who have passed? Or do we crave the raw fear of a ghostly encounter?
