Bram Stoker’s The Judge’s House

This Halloween NeuNoir theatre presents The Judge’s House – a tale of creeping terror written by Dracula creator Bram Stoker, at Greyfriars House and Garden on the 1st November.

Arriving in a sleepy market town, a student, keen to study in quiet, discovers a vacant desolate Jacobean manor. Though once owned by a merciless ‘hanging judge’ (now deceased), and feared by superstitious locals, he nonetheless rents the imposing property.

But after moving in, his initially peaceful studies are violently disturbed by an infestation of gnawing rats, whose repellent invasions become bolder and bolder with each passing night …

The story of a sceptical scholar and a seemingly haunted house, The Judge’s House was originally published in the Christmas 1891 edition of the weekly Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News. Warning of the inherent dangers of dismissing superstition, it’s widely regarded as one of Stoker’s greatest horror achievements.

Read by actor Richard Usher (Sweet Cherry Publishing’s Sherlock Holmes audiobooks; BBC Radio; The Lost Hancocks: Vacant Lot), The Judge’s House is the fourth production from NeuNoir.
