The Enfield Poltergeist
Fresh from the fringe theatre circuit, the original stage production based on the alleged haunting of a council house in Enfield, London arrives at the Puppet Theatre in Norwich as part of their spring UK tour. Described by the Yorkshire Times’ theatre critic as ‘engaging and thought provoking’ and the subject of a recent article in the Guardian newspaper, The Enfield Poltergeist show explores the real story behind the lurid press headlines!
Following the tragic death of his daughter, Maurice Grosse joins the Society for Psychical Research in London. But while investigating the Enfield Poltergeist in 1977, he is haunted by coincidences surrounding paranormal activity that appears to be centred around one particular girl. Based on the true events of the infamous Enfield poltergeist case, this is a journey of redemption, and the chance to lay old ghosts to rest.
Kiera Rhodes and Paul Voodini portray troubled characters, thrown together within the walls of a supposedly haunted council house in Enfield, who must not only solve the mystery of the poltergeist, but also find peace with their own tragic pasts.
