Dead Men’s Eyes

Two Ghost Stories by M R James

Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

“Put it down, you fool! Do you want to look through a dead man’s eyes?”

Two chilling and thrilling tales from M R James, the master of the English ghost story.

In A View from a Hill a pair of old binoculars reveal the grisly history of an idyllic stretch of English landscape. In The Treasure of Abbot Thomas a treasure-seeker comes face to face with unspeakable horror at the bottom of ancient well.

Dead Men’s Eyes is the sixth instalment of Nunkie’s M R James Project, a series of one-man shows that seek to revive the tradition of oral, supernatural storytelling that was perfected by Montague Rhodes James in Cambridge in the years leading up to World War One.
