A WARNING TO THE CURIOUS
TWO GHOST STORIES BY M R JAMES

M R James first wrote his ghost stories to perform to friends in Kings College Cambridge. Now, 120 years after their first publication, Nunkie Theatre Company have bought two of the eeriest and most entertaining back to life in this gripping, candlelit one-man show performed by Robert Lloyd Parry.
 
Lost Hearts was among the first stories the author wrote and it offers one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney. It is paired here with perhaps James's most poignant and personal work, A Warning to the Curious, in which a young archaeologist is haunted and hunted by the guardian of an ancient treasure.
 
The English seaside has never looked so menacing.
 
"Lloyd Parry's mastery of the role is itself an act of possession" The New Yorker
