There will be an Audio Described performance of The Enfield Haunting starring Catherine Tate (pictured) and David Threlfall on February 17.
The world premiere of this major new play by Paul Unwin runs at London’s Ambassadors Theatre, which underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment in 2022 to make the venue more accessible, until March 2.
It’s the story of an ordinary, working-class family in north London who became the centre of one of the most famous poltergeist events in the world.
The Hodgsons had no idea what a poltergeist was when, in the summer of 1977, furniture and toys started moving of their own accord. The Enfield Haunting focusses on one night in the spring of 1978 when events were approaching a climax.
Based on the first-hand accounts of one of the ghost hunters, The Enfield Haunting is the true story of what happened when a dedicated single mother tries to protect her three children from something that is incomprehensible, deeply disturbing and is hurtling to a terrifying conclusion.
Accessible features at the Ambassadors Theatre include a new marble ramp for access into the venue and a new access lift to the stalls, where there is a bar and access toilet. There are four spaces for non-transferring patrons and a new Mobile Connect system.
