Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost Tickets

Get into the spirit of Christmas...

Review this show


This wonderfully witty, delightfully spooky retelling of Oscar Wilde’s 1887 comic novel is brought to life this Christmas with spine-tingling magic, spectacular illusions and ghoulish effects.

Mr and Mrs Otis and their boisterous children arrive from America to move into Canterville Chase – a rather old, rather creepy Gothic mansion. Of course, like all the best old mansions, the Chase comes with its own ghost – the rather tormented Sir Simon Canterville.

The spectral knight does his best to spook the trespassers from his ancestral home but his ghostly machinations hold no fear for this rational modern family.

Sir Simon succumbs to utter despair until he meets young Virginia Otis, who sees him for who he really is…
Age Recommendation: 7+

Critic reviews

What’s nice about The Canterville Ghost is that it doesn’t under-estimate it’s young audience

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Not-so-seriously spooky


An energetic ride of hilarity and ingenuity with a brilliant cast and a good message at its heart

· Everything Theatre

The play manages to capture Wilde's characteristic wit extremely well

· WhatsOnStage

Anthony Weigh’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s gothic spoof is too leisurely to get your child’s hair standing on end

· The Sunday Times

Spooky storytelling for young audiences, enlivened by boisterous energy and fun visual tricks

· The Stage

This take on Oscar Wilde’s story of a family moving into their spooky new home is a child-friendly blend of gothic horror and quirky comedy

· The Guardian
