Event Summary

They were invited to see out the Old Year – but would they ever see in the New?!

Pat Whymark and Julian Harries bring The Fenland Screamers & Other Boggy Tales to Ipswich, Woodbridge & Peterborough this year!

It is the 30th December, 1926. Young amateur sleuth siblings Sloppy & Sixpence arrive at a remote house in the middle of Clinker Fen, invited by a distant relative to celebrate the New Year. Tempted by the idea of a grand weekend party, they find the place deserted apart from the creepy housekeeper, Mrs Beville. She is expecting them and despite their misgivings, they decide to stay.

Three other guests arrive, all strangers to one another, and as the fog descends, cutting them off from the outside world, they pass the time by telling stories. It becomes apparent that they all have a guilty secret, and are unnerved when Mrs Beville tells them the local legend of the Fenland Screamers, avenging spirits who emerge from the bogs to drag the guilty back down into the mire.

One of the guests, crippled WW1 flying ace Cyril Flippersby, disappears, and they all begin to fear for their lives and their sanity. Can Sloppy & Sixpence solve the mystery before the Screamers come again and take them all, one by one.

Price: £10.50 to £15
