Company: Cyd-Gynhyrchiad Mappa Mundi | Theatr Mwldan Co-Production
Victorian Ghost Stories based on the works of Edgar Allen Poe and M.R.James
Blending the ghost stories of renowned horror writers Edgar Allen Poe and MR James with their own slice of Victorian Gothic, Mappa Mundi return with tales to chill the soul.
Elements from Poe’s classic stories - the beating pulse of The Tell Tale Heart, the ghoulish clowning of Hop-Frog and the terror of The Raven and The Black Cat - together with celebrated ghost writer MR James’ ghoulish fables - A Warning to the Curious, The Mezzotint and Whistle and I’ll Come To You My Lad - form the basis of a compendium of terrifying tales.
These tales are linked by a Victorian photographer obsessed by death, with his own demons to exorcise come the strike of midnight. Full of haunting imagery from the Victorian era, Still Life is a celebration of 19th Century horror, given a deliciously dark Mappa Mundi twist.
