Haunting Julia – Alan Ackbourn
Directed by John Miles
Show dates: 4th - 8th June 2019
Joe has bought his daughter Julia’s old student accommodation and the house next door. She was a gifted classical composer, who committed suicide in this room. It’s now part of a Music Centre, dedicated to Julia, which has facilities for aspiring young musicians and has become a popular tourist venue with the many fans of Julia’s outstanding musical compositions.
Joe invites Andy, Julia’s boyfriend, to see the new exhibition. Unknown to Andy, a psychic, Ken, has also been invited, deliberately to confront Andy and perhaps throw some light on Julia’s enigmatic death.
Why did she take her life when her future was so bright? Why did she visit Ken instead of going to see her parents? Was Joe the cause of her death?
A drama with supernatural overtones... not the usual Ayckbourn play.
