Christmas Gothic to bring wintery chills!

Posted on: 15th November 2016


With Halloween just behind us and Christmas lurking around the corner what better time for a piece of Christmas Gothic.

There is a real Sunday night theatre treat opening at The Playhouse this week as we're proud to welcome back DYAD productions and actress Rebecca Vaughan in her brand new show ‘Christmas Gothic.'

Following the international touring success that was Female Gothic, Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the gooseflesh on dark Christmas nights. A dark, spectral woman will tell you haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the icy, chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark... Chilling stuff perfect for huddling together as the nights get darker and colder.

Rebecca Vaughn has thrilled Derry audiences before in other DYAD productions, most notably "I, Elizabeth", "Female Gothic" and "Austen's Women." These productions have all garnered five-star reviews at Edinburgh, 2009-2015. Christmas Gothic is the first Dyad production to be released outside the Edinburgh Fringe, due to its festive nature but has already proven to be a 5-star staple of the Christmas theatre season.
