Haunting Julia – Alan Ayckbourn

I saw a matinee production of HAUNTING JULIA, a ghost story play at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester, this afternoon. A play by Alan Ayckbourn. Marvellous.
Anyone else know this play? The scary sound effects were enhanced by building work at the theatre. Seriously.
It appealed to me, too, as it was effectively a Horror story with a classical music theme – of which I was unaware when producing THE FIRST BOOK OF CLASSICAL HORROR STORIES! it even mentioned Stockhausen.

Scary and humorous – sometimes simultaneously.

Thought-provoking, too.

The three actors were great – Duncan Preston, Joe McFadden and Richard O’Callaghan – and must have spent a long time learning endless lines!
