Brighton Little Theatre present
Edith in the Dark (abridged version)

Friday 16th & Saturday 17th November,
performances at 7:30pm & 9:15pm

Tickets are £10.00, available here.

Children’s author E Nesbit, bored of her husband’s Christmas party, retreats to her basement with her faithful housekeeper and a handsome party guest. As the night draws on Edith reads some of her work, not from her cherished children’s stories but her early terrifying horror tales. As the stories unfold it becomes clear that the darkness is not only in the writing.

Please note that this is a site specific promenade performance which will require you to stand to watch the performance. The play will last for approximately an hour and will involve moving around several rooms. The venue can only be accessed by going down a step flight of stairs.

Exhibition - peck o' trouble
by artist Suzanne O'Haire

Friday 2nd - Sunday 25th November
Mon - Tues: by appointment only
Wed - Fri: 11:00am - 6:00pm
Sat - Sun: 12noon - 4:00pm

Free admission

For this exhibition, Suzanne O'Haire will present a series of 34 domestic-scale sculptural assemblages, titled beyond belief, made predominately out of discarded objects, castings from disposed packaging and elements of neon lighting. Permanent structures will emerge from impermanent matter, where arrangements of acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced forms will perform as supposed magical sigils or spells.

O'Haire wants this work to encourage conversation regarding a presumed connection between the making of art and notions of magic. She has invited Sally O'Reilly (writer), Simon Costin (Director of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic) and David Bramwell (writer/broadcaster) as guest speakers. All three have revealed a distinctive slant towards the occult within their own work and will give talks within the duration of the show.

Guest speaker events will be available to book through Eventbrite at a later date.
Saturday 10th November - Sally O'Reilly
Saturday 17th November - Simon Costin
Saturday 24th November - David Bramwell

As Suzanne explains, "No conscious value system breaks down why I chose what I do - I'd prefer to believe that what I find, or what finds me, plays with notions of luck and chance".
