Experience chills and thrills with The Enfield Haunting play tickets, starring Catherine Tate

Do you believe in the supernatural? Travel back to the 1970s, when a mother and her children are being terrorised by unseen forces… The Enfield Haunting play at the Ambassadors Theatre is a gripping new play starring Catherine Tate and David Threlfall, inspired by the true story that bewildered, chilled and thrilled the nation.

Peggy Hodgson didn’t know what a poltergeist was until her home was invaded by one in 1977. Objects began to move, strange noises called out at all hours of the night, and her young daughters seemed to be its target. Suddenly, this ordinary working-class family was at the centre of a spine-tingling case that had the nation on tenterhooks, and ghost hunters flocking to their door. And as the poltergeist grew braver, its behaviour escalated until one night in the spring of 1978… 

Brace yourself for the uncanny, the terrifying and the bizarre as the true story of a famous haunting creeps onto the stage, starring Catherine Tate as protective mother Peggy Hodgson and David Threlfall as ghost hunter Maurice Grosse. Tate is best known for her comedy roles in The Catherine Tate Show, Queen of Oz, and has experience of the supernatural via her starring turn in Doctor Who. Tony Award nominee Threlfall’s credits include the black comedy play Hangmen and Channel 4 comedy Shameless.

The Enfield Haunting play is written by Paul Unwin, co-creator of the world’s longest-running medical drama, Casualty. His other credits include Shameless and time as a director at Bristol Old Vic Theatre. The show is directed by Angus Jackson
