This Halloween Moyse’s Hall Museum will host a brand new version of Bring Out Your Dead Productions’ The Rats in the Walls and Other Tales.

Greg Hanson, artistic director of the Bury St Edmunds theatre company, said: “We’re very excited to be back with this new version of ‘Rats’ after the success of last year’s sold-out production at The Farmers Club in Bury.

“We’ve now developed and refined the show to create something even more thrilling, chilling, and unnerving, that’s going to sit perfectly in the creepy surroundings of Moyse’s Hall.”

The new play has been adapted from the works of H P Lovecraft, M R James – the famous ghost story writer who lived in Great Livermere – and Edgar Allan Poe.

Mr Hanson said: “It’s been interesting adding James’ stories into the mix. His writing style is much gentler than Poe and Lovecraft’s, the ghosts and ghouls in his tales have a way of sneaking up on you, and we’ve found his style contrasts quite nicely with the more Gothic tales.”

The production, which has been part-funded by a grant from Bury Town Council, is being sponsored by The Suffolk Pest Control Company.
