Welcome to Anchester…

In exactly one week we will be deep into the dangerous hinterland that is Technical Rehearsal, as we put the finishing touches on our creepy Halloween production ‘The Rats in the Walls & Other Tales’.

As we plough on this week with our final rehearsals we wanted to introduce you to two of the characters you will meet when you come to see the show…

William de La Poer

"Can't you hear them, Edward? The rats, the rats in the walls!"
“Can’t you hear them, Edward? The rats, the rats in the walls!”

William is the sole surviving descendent of the de la Poer family; a long line of noblemen whose reputation has all but fallen into obscurity. William arrives in the village of Anchester determined to restore Exham Priory, once the de la Poer estate, to its former glory. But dark secrets lay in wait deep beneath the crumbling castle…


 

Captain Edward Norrys

"The tales are nonsense. But the villagers believe them, and their fear is very real indeed."
“The tales are nonsense. But the villagers believe them, and their fear is very real indeed.”

Captain Norrys earned his title during the Great War, where he fought alongside William de la Poer’s son, Arthur. Eager to help his fallen comrade’s father, he supports William through the restoration of Exham Priory… but soon discovers that dealing with a de la Poer can be a dangerous game indeed…


If you haven’t booked tickets yet… what are you waiting for!? We haven’t got many left! You can grab the last few here. We are also running a Kickstarter campaign to raise a small amount of money to go towards the show. We’ve got some spine-tingling rewards available starting at only £5 – you can donate here.

We look forward to introducing the rest of our characters next week!
