Ghostly tale from master storyteller at Tealby.

A timeless Christmas chiller takes to the stage at Tealby next week.

Oh Whistle and I'll Come To You EMN-161123-094811001

The only performance of the play in the county will take place in the village hall on Wednesday, December 7 (7.30pm).

Oh Whistle and I’ll Come To You is an adaptation of an M R James ghost story and is performed by New Perspectives.

Professor Parkins takes a room at The Globe.

Away from Cambridge, a peaceful coastal retreat with minimal interruption from the inn’s young valet should be perfect for writing.

On taking a walk to explore the area, Parkins finds discovers an ancient whistle with a soul-stirring inscription urging him not to blow it.

Choosing to ignore its warning, the professor is soon to discover he is not alone.
