Get Your Coats On – Edinburgh Fringe 2023
“Enchanting, chilling, yet charming” EXCELLENT SHOW
“Highly enjoyable entertainment”
Two of Charles Dickens’ creepy tales – with a comic twist. Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile!
“The Queer Chair” from “The Pickwick Papers” tells the story of Tom Smart, who, sheltering from a storm for the night, gets more than he bargained for…from a wizened and debauched piece of furniture!
“The Ghosts of the Mail” – After a well-lubricated supper in the Old Town of Edinburgh, Jack Martin climbs into a compound containing the derelict skeletons of old coaches and falls asleep, whereupon he wakes as a passenger on an eighteenth -century mail coach, with three creepy companions.
Like “The Woman in Black” – but funnier, with fewer people!
