On a Tuesday night  I found myself out side one of my favourite places in West End, Ecclectica Books.

This is not ordinary book store but full of items for fans of the  black arts, conspiracy theorists and spell seekers.

We were seated at a very long table in the centre of the store with hats on the table of various styles and colours  for that matter.

Decanters full of coke and water with goblets were also on the table with candles to complete the look.

So begins a spooky night with writer and director, Nathan Schulz telling the story that uncle told him about Ella Kruger(Audrey Cadzow) and her relationship with her mother in law in their house at West End.

It was a spooky story, instead of watching the performers we were asked to put on blindfolds so we could experience the night by sound and feelings.

The sound effects were great, let’s just say this book store was the perfect space for this show I was never tempted once to peek I really got myself spooked out, the noises were sharp and loud.  With the whispering in my ear I was hooked.

When the blindfolds came off we were shown articles and images of the scene we had just heard about.

I am not sure if it the story was based on fact or Nathan just has a vivid imagination.

I was asked “Do you want to see the sound effects machine?” I was tempted but then decided against it,

The cast did a great job especially there were some outside noises that were not “written into the script” they ignored them as best they could.

Playing now until the 21 May
