A Christmas Cracker - December 2000

A Christmas Cracker was an evening in three parts - two plays and a sketch, poems and readings.

A scary story about a monkey's paw with magical powers. It gives three wishes to its owners, and rips apart their lives.

The Monkey's Paw - Mr Sampson and Mrs White

The Hunting Horn
The Hunting Horn, written and directed by Ed Heeley, is set in the ninteenth century and is a ghostly tale about preserving tradition and the relationship between town and country - themes which are resonant today.
