OH, WHISTLE . . . 

TWO GHOST STORIES

BY M R JAMES

Performed by Robert Lloyd Parry

**** Lloyd Parry’s beautifully modulated performance is perfectly judged to send an enjoyable chill down the spine. Metro

Over a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse. Following his critically acclaimed one-man show A Pleasing Terror and his appearance as the writer MR James on BBC4 last Christmas, Robert Lloyd Parry brings two more of James’ classic spine-chillers back to life.

Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad – a tale of nocturnal horror on the Suffolk coast – is considered by many to be the author’s masterpiece. It is beautifully complemented here by The Ash Tree, a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations.
