David Benson's Haunted Stage

Award-winning performer David Benson brings classic ghost stories to spine-chilling life in this spooky show for all the family.

What are ghosts anyway? And has anyone seen one in this theatre? Sceptic or not, you'll think you have by the end of this deeply creepy show. Benson fills the stage with brilliant enactments of stories, including a tale about his grandfather's ghost sightings together with new versions of classic spine-chillers. In the comedy highlight of the show, the audience take part in a spiritualist service under the all-seeing eyes of a camp psychic. This is David Benson's fifth solo show - best known of the Fringe First winner's previous work is Think No Evil Of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams.

A great big box of ghostly delights, suitable for 8 to 80 year olds. Just like the scares and thrills of watching Doctor Who as a kid. Except this time there is no sofa to hide behind. - RADIO FORTH

It all seems very real, and very, very scary... David Benson's Haunted Stage will delight believers and sceptics alike. - EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS
