About: Gormenghast

Unravel a web of deeply kept secrets buried in the dark labyrinth of the great gothic castle of Gormenghast. Dare to step inside and enter a world of grotesque characters and mysterious ritual. In this vast crumbling kingdom of corridors and shadows you will encounter a strange and lurid tale of greed, honour, madness and love.

This magical show is a great way to begin an exploration in to one of English Literatures most undisputed fantasy classics, Mervyn Peake’s great Gormengast. A macabre tale of a dysfunctional family incarcerated in a fantastical bygone age, Gormenghast presents a heart-rending drama set in the shadowy labyrinths of a huge gothic castle.

If you enjoyed Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials you will love Gormenghast
