To be read at dusk
"You wretch! You had to go and write my story of the lady haunted by the face; I shall have nothing to talk about now at dull parties. Yours most truly, E. C. Gaskell."

A smaller project commisioned by the Manchester Literature Festival, To be read at dusk was an adaptation of the Dickens' short story which also explored his relationship with Elizabeth Gaskell. Performed in the style of a travelling troupe, pulling props and set out of travelling cases and making the audience part of the scenery, this was a high energy show and very fun to pull together.
