    Ernest and the Pale Moon

    a highly atmospheric piece of gothic story-telling. Channelling Edgar Allan Poe and Henry James of The Turn of the Screw period, the company produces a compelling and macabre account of obsession, immurement and murder. William McEvoy

    A gloriously gothic production about obsession, from razor-sharp theatre group Les Enfants Terribles ... the real joy is the sheer inventiveness of the ensemble's quirky telling, combining physical and musical ingenuity to luminous effect. Elizabeth Kirkwood
