Worldwide cult phenomenon Ghost Stories is set to terrify audiences in Kent on its first UK tour.

The Olivier award-nominated show invites audiences to enter a nightmarish world full of twists and turns, where all their deepest fears and most disturbing thoughts are imagined live on stage in a fully sensory encounter.

The show, which has moments of extreme shock and tension and is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15, will come to the Marlowe Theatre from Tuesday, March 3 to Saturday, March 7, 2020.

The action unfolds when lecturer Professor Goodman argues that the supernatural is purely a trick of the mind.

The audience "attends" his lecture, telling of three people claiming to have encountered the supernatural.
