The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Waiting in the Wings

31st October 2023 at 8:00pm

Do you want to believe?

An evening of theatrical ghost stories.

The theatre is a strange place, this one particularly so. Have you ever been by yourself in the Studio, the Clubroom or the Green Room, and felt that you weren’t completely alone? Felt that just behind you, over your shoulder is something unseen? If so, then chances are you’re sensing one of the Barn ghosts.

This Halloween, Simon Wallace invites you to take a supernatural tour of the Barn. Over the last 30 years he has been collecting anecdotes, stories and personal experiences of those who have encountered ‘the Barn ghost’, and now presents them as a ‘rough draft’ of a one-man play entitled Waiting in the Wings.

If you fancy something a little spine-tingling, then grab a drink and take your seat in the Barn Clubroom and prepare to be spooked.

There are only a few spaces (12 at the time of writing) left for this event.
