I Ain’t Afraid Of No Ghost!

Little Earthquake Theatre

Show Info

“It’s 1986; Prince Andrew and Fergie get married in the summer. Dirty Den serves Angie divorce papers on Christmas Day. And I’m sharing my bedroom with a KitKat-pinching ghost.”

Gareth’s bedroom in an ordinary family house in Derby is full of classic ‘stuff’: an army of He-Man figures, some very Hungry Hippos, chart hits captured from the radio on a stack of cassette tapes, and a wardrobe full of interesting fashion choices. But strange things are happening behind closed doors and the disappearance of Dad’s Kit Kat is the final straw.

Aged 8, and inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, and launched an investigation into a playful poltergeist. Now, 30 years later, with the help of family heirlooms, photos, iconic 80s toys, interviews with family members, and real home videos, grown-up Gareth (with the help of fellow performer Philip) is setting out to investigate what was really going on in his supposedly haunted house.

Adults and adventurous teens will love this comic exploration of a childhood haunting, where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats, and set to a cheese-tastic chart-topping soundtrack.
