Halloween is barely over, and, with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future lurking, horror is never far away. The Dead, Live invites the audience to participate in a live psychic medium show, in which things may not be quite what they seem.

Lawrence Dodds is a popular 'psychic' medium who knows he's a fake, but the world of Spirit may have some shocks in store for him when someone unexpected attends one of his live shows in this eerie drama by Daniel Thackeray.

The Dead, Live is a ghost story, ten years in the making, that has been performed to much acclaim at places like the London Horror Festival, at the Stage Fright: A Day of Theatrical Horror at the Kings Arms in Salford last month (see here), and now it's coming to Smiths Restaurant in Eccles on Wednesday 15th November.

"The wonderful sense of being in the same room with something otherworldly...I wanted to capture that" says Daniel "And, of course, that element is also present, in a different way, in live psychic shows, the kind of thing that Derek Acorah does. It seemed to me that to write something which combined the two could be a real winner. Still, it took a long time to get the balance right but, thanks to a brilliant director and cast, I think we've finally done it. And audiences are in for something really memorable...

"The performance at Eccles will mark the final performance of the play for 2017, and offers theatre-goers in search of some spooky entertainment the opportunity to enjoy an excellent meal before the show" he adds "Could be an excellent opportunity for an unusual date!"
