The ghost story to end all ghost stories...

Whistle, and I'll Come to You!

A spine-tingling contemporary chiller based on M R James’ classic ghost story

Professor Parkins imagines her holiday on the East Anglian coast will be a relaxing antidote to the rigours of college life, an enjoyable mix of golf and amateur archaeology ... but when a little light digging uncovers a long-buried bronze whistle, with a cryptic inscription, reawakened family secrets transform themselves into a ghastly nightmare, the consequences of which will haunt her forever.

This stage production is an adaptation of the short story by M R James. Rumpus' production of M R James' The Haunted Dolls' House was "truly chilling ... excellent" (The Reviews Hub) while The Haunting of Exham Priory was "fantastic" (A Younger Theatre) and Charles Dickens' The Haunted Bride was also "fantastic ... the audience jumped out of their skin" (The Public Reviews).

Whistle, and I'll Come to You! promises much more of the same …

"there are a few tricks and it is definitely a treat" (British Theatre Guide on "The Red Room")

Approx running time 80mins not including interval.
