IES present The Haunting
10th - 13th Sept
The Haunting by Hugh Janes after Charles Dickens. 10th - 13th September Directed by Philip Wells In an ancient, crumbling mansion, sheltering from the howling winds that tear across the surrounding desolate moorland, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever. David Filde is employed to catalogue the estate's impressive library and finds an incredible array of rare books. But as a series of strange and unexplained events conspires to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror to discover the source of the terrifying visitations. Drawing similarities to “the women in black” The Haunting is a classic tale of terror that mixes together all the essential ingredients of the great Victorian ghost stories to thrilling and macabre effect.

For over three years I, Gordon, have felt that I would like to do something to raise some money for Prostate Cancer Research and Macmillan Nurses. Deaths, directly from prostate cancer, are in second place on the NHS list of cancer deaths, lung cancer first. Yet it is in 20th place when it comes to research funding. Macmillan nurses do a wonderful job and yet are continually underfunded. Our request to The Trustees of the Warehouse Theatre to put on a Charity Event, was met with a resounding, yes! We have reserved 27th September, 2014. The event cannot be promoted by Ilminster Entertainments Society, because of its charity status. Therefore, it will be produced under ‘Easy Life Theatre Company’. We have at least 6 singers, who are, or have been, in London West End shows, including, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Mama Mia’, ‘Les Miserable’, ‘Avenue Q’, ‘Buddy’ and ‘Wicked’. There will be International Latin American dancers to enhance some of the songs. We offer a pre-show reception and canapes during the interval, plus a quality draw. The cost is £25/ticket and with advertising and sponsorship we should be able to make a substantial donation to Prostate Cancer and Macmillan Nurses. Gordon & Jo
