Unravel the web of deeply kept secrets buried in the labyrinths of the great gothic castle of Gormenghast.   Dare to step inside and you will enter a world of grotesque characters, mysterious ritual and heart-rending drama.

Meet Steerpike, the pale power-crazed kitchen boy.   Titus, the timid, fine-boned rebellious heir to the corrupt castle.   His sister Fuschia, the wild, raven-haired romantic, and a host of sinister inhabitants.

In this vast crumbling kingdom of corridors and shadows you will encounter a strange and lurid, funny and frightening tale of greed, honour madness and love.

Celebrating 25years of national and international touring, David Glass Ensemble return with their award-winning production of Gormenghast.   Mervyn Peake's fantastical world comes to life through the inventive theatrical visuals and spectacular imagination that won David Glass the TMA Award for best director.

A truly inspired adaptation, I thought, when I saw it last night. Someone in the crowd claimed to have known your father well.
