The Watch House

Fri 15 November 2024

Olivier Award-winners Papatango present this funny, thrilling adaptation of Robert Westall’s classic ghost story, set on the Northumberland coast.

“There’s a legend about the Watch House. Scrape beneath the whitewash and you’ll find terror. You’ll find him.”

Once a coastguard station renowned for daring rescues, the old Watch House is now all but abandoned. Just like Anne, dumped here while her parents sort their divorce. She’s never felt more alone. But she isn’t…

Sunk deep in the past is a secret which threatens everything. Only Anne can stop it. Catapulted on an adventure through graveyards, discos and shipwrecks, she and her eccentric crew must uncover the truth before it’s too late.

“A smart and spooky festive treat.” The Stage

“Brilliant actors, proper goosebumps, hilarity.” The Reviews Hub

*Please note – This performance will take place at Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt*
