I’ll Be Back Before Midnight


A psychological thriller by Award winning playwright Peter Colley.  This play has been produced in over 35 countries and is also a major motion picture.

A Hitchcock like comic-thriller which is likely to have you not knowing whether to laugh or scream.

Set in a dilapidated old farm house way out in the English countryside in the late 1980s, after several months in hospital following a nervous breakdown, Jan is brought to an isolated farmhouse by her husband to complete her recovery… but unsettling things begin to happen almost as soon as they arrive.

We meet an odd farmer who delights in telling gruesome ghost stories and the husband's sister, a very strange character arrives - all manner of frightening events occur.
