Producer James Seabright has today announced that ‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live,’ based on the worldwide smash hit docu-drama podcast of the same name, is coming to theatres across the UK in October and November 2021.
The 9-date tour will include a special London date at Clapham Grand on Halloween (31 October 2021) which is located just minutes from the site of the actual haunting at 63 Wycliffe Road.
‘The Battersea Poltergeist’ was a multi-million download, genre-busting phenomenon, mixing documentary and drama to tell the incredible and terrifying true story of the 1956 haunting of the Hitchings family at the hands of a poltergeist they nicknamed Donald.
Now, at this exclusive live event, audiences will meet the show’s creator, writer and journalist Danny Robins – who is currently making his West End writing debut with ‘2:22: A Ghost Story’ at the Noel Coward Theatre – as well as other guest experts from the podcast.
Together they will delve deeper into this paranormal cold case, bringing the investigation to life on stage, sharing exclusive footage of Shirley Hitchings and other witnesses, and revealing some stunning (and chilling) new evidence.
Dubbed Britain’s strangest ever haunting; it was a poltergeist case that spanned an incredible 12-year period. At its height, became a major national news story, with newspaper headlines about strange noises, flying objects, exorcisms and ghostly communication. An attempt was even made to contact the poltergeist on live prime-time TV on the BBC and it was discussed by the Home Secretary in the House of Commons.
At ‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’ there will be a Q&A so you can put your questions about the case and the making of the series to Danny and his team of experts!
