Do you believe in ghosts?

Over 30 years ago, director and performer Gareth Nicholl's family home was haunted by a rather playful poltergeist. Cupboard doors would open, Madonna records would spring into life in the wee small hours; the final straw, however, came when the family pack of Kit Kats disappeared…

Using family heirlooms, iconic 80s toys, interviews, photographs and real-life home videos on stage, Gareth sets out to get to the bottom of this paranormal mystery; what was really going on?

Inspired and fantastic fun to watch, this is both a hugely entertaining 'true' story of things that go bump in the night, and a wonderfully touching nostalgia trip to the 80s in all its really-totally-awesome 'good=bad' glory.
