At the smallest theatre in Buxton 24-26 July

Scrivener's may well be the biggest bookshop in Buxton - and for many miles around - but it is also the smallest performance space. However, every year it is a delight to attend intimate performances there. There are 15 tickets only for each show - so don't delay and be disappointed. Coming up is this treat:


Threadbare Carpet Productions presents a new play for the Buxton Fringe: The Good Lady Ducayne based on a story of the same title by Mary Braddon the ‘Queen of the Victorian sensational novelists’ 

‘Before Dracula, there was the Good Lady Ducayne!’
Originally published in The Strand Magazine on February 1896, a year before Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this site-specific production is a classic tale of horror and suspense set in the Dark Peak and will be performed in Scrivener’s second-hand bookshop, the perfect setting for this gothic tale of mystery and suspense. It is produced and directed by Cordelia Howard and adapted by Michael Howard, whose An Evening at the Cabaret Voltaire won the MEN Drama award for Fringe Productions in 1996.
