GHOSTLY tales are brought to life on the Salisbury Playhouse stage this month.

Upon The Stair is in The Salberg from Thursday January 16 to Saturday 18.

As darkness falls, The Storyteller, The Shade and The Musician awaken. Burdened with telling the tales of The Book of Darkness and Light, together they bring three ghostly stories to life. Every page conjures a new horror.

What is the strange shape lurking in the reeds? Why is that gruesome figure hiding in your mirror? Whose are the ghoulish steps upon the stair?

This is a trio of macabre tales to unsettle and delight which will linger long after the lights go out.

The show uses a combination of storytelling, live music and integrated British Sign Language (BSL).

With the words of The Storyteller (Adam Z Robinson), the physical performance of The Shade (Raffie Julien) and score by The Musician (Chloë Hayward), the show aims to leave audiences riveted, charmed and terrified all at once.

Upon the Stair is presented in association with Square Chapel Arts Centre, Harrogate Theatres and Little Mighty.
