Reviews for The Haunting
“The ingenious, creepy old house pushed us into a horrifying place from the start and the original, spine-chilling music by Laura Tisdall kept us there. A great piece of theatre, drama in its finest form.”
– The Hunts Post
“An intriguing and gripping piece of theatre.”
– Surrey Herald
