With Murder by Gaslight we welcome the return of ‘Don’t Go into the Cellar’, our Victorian Theatre friends who brought us brilliant sell-out performances of The Singular Exploits of Sherlock Holmes, Old Haunts and The Ghost Stories of M. R. James.

This new show is a ghoulish audience with two of the most infamous poisoners in British history – Doctors William Palmer and Harvey Crippen. You are invited to encounter these murderous men of medicine as the diabolical doctors regale you with their case histories, and leave you to judge for yourselves whether they were in fact, guilty as charged!

‘Don’t Go into the Cellar’ theatre company present the Victorian and Edwardian eras’ finest chillers and thrillers to life again! Bringing new adaptations of nineteenth-century literature’s greatest ghost and horror stories to modern-day audiences. So leave this weary, workaday world behind, Ladies and Gentlemen, and join us for some good old-fashioned thrills, chills and chuckles. But remember, whatever you do – DON’T GO INTO THE CELLAR!

"The British Empire's finest practitioners of theatrical Victoriana in the macabre vein."
