During the performance, the audience is encouraged to be a part of the story and watch as the spooky drama unfolds around them.

Spiritualist medium Anna believes that an apparition resides in the Vaults– and she is determined to make contact.

But in this game of fear, what other players are on the board?

Writer and director Paul Spencer said: “The Market Vaults are a great location for such a shadowy, mysterious story with their underground chambers and Old Town history. “Think of the spirit world as a great house that is dark, blue and silent. It’s all around us, occupying the same space – but we cannot see it?”
