Of the emails you might wish to receive, this is just the best. Next Saturday evening I’ll be making mischief in and around Sudbury Hall – as part of The Lost Boys live interactive screening of The Innocents. The 1961 adaptation of the Henry James novel, and collaborative project between The Lost Boys, BFI, Derby Quad and The National Trust.
“The Innocents is an adaptation of the Henry James novel about a young governess of two children who becomes convinced that the house and grounds are haunted. Sudbury Hall will become the country estate at Bly, haunted by violent memories of tragic events. Do the ghosts of the house want you to know their story?”
Tickets are selling like hot Goth cupcakes at a Horror bakery. There are a few left, available from Derby Quad box office.
With an interactive paranormal investigator, excommunicated priest and a bunch of interactive mischief-makers, why visit a multiplex for a Saturday night out?
The email also contained the greatest performance directive I’ve ever received. But I’ll add that to this post after the performance-screening has taken place. I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise.
