Edith in the Dark

  • Priory Theatre Rosemary Hill Kenilworth, England, CV8 1BN United Kingdom (map)

Directed By Karen Shayler


During one of her husband’s tiresome parties, celebrated children’s author Edith Nesbit (The Railway Children, Five Children & It) retreats to her attic writing room with her housekeeper and an unexpected, handsome party guest.

As midnight approaches, Edith gives a reading of her work. Not from her cherished children’s tales, but her terrifying early horror stories. As the stories unfold it becomes clear all is not what it seems…Someone in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.

Edith in the Dark is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.

“A superbly written new play… a devilishly good idea” THE STAGE.
