The Poltergeist of Cock Lane

C (-1)

Genre: Musicals and Opera
Sub-genre: historical, new writing


A grieving widower, a drunken landlord and a dead wife unite together for a murder trial. A new musical based on infamous hauntings taking place in London between 1761 and 1762, the only time in legal history that a man was charged with murder based on evidence given by a ghost. Part-black comedy, part-supernatural mystery and part-Gothic romance, this is a musical journey into the crazed heart of eighteenth-century London. Bizarre, dark, funny and moving, The Poltergeist of Cock Lane investigates one of the strangest corners of real London lore.
