Following their Autumn East Anglian tour, Colchester’s Packing Shed are back home with a new terrifying tale for the spooking season.

An out of work actor turns up at an old library to record a ghost story. As he begins to recite the tale, he soon realises it has a disturbingly familiar ring to it. Stories have the power to make you laugh, cry, and think. But do they have the power to kill?

Packing Shed Theatre have been scaring the wits out of audiences for the last three years with their Terrifically Terrifying Tales show re-telling ghoulishly old East Anglian folk stories for modern-day audiences.
