A WARNING TO THE CURIOUS
Monday 4 November, 8pm
On the coast of Suffolk, a young archaeologist is haunted by the guardian of an ancient treasure.A Warning to the Curious is arguably M R James’s last great ghost story. Published in 1925, it draws on the author’s own seaside experience and seems also to be a response to the traumas of the first World War.
Robert Lloyd Parry returns to the Drama Studio and performs this terrifying tale by candlelight. It’s paired with Lost Hearts, among the first stories James wrote and offering one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney.
The English seaside has never looked so menacing.
