Taut and atmospheric show… a hugely entertaining evening★★★★★ London Pub Theatres

The Haunting has you gripped (to your seat) from start to finish, the perfect winter chiller full of darkly wonderful effects that will have you leaving the light on. The Bardette

a masterly job… don’t see it on your own! ★★★★ Stage Review

The production was always intriguing and never lost its momentum and ability to surprise. Excellent fare for a winter’s evening. ★★★★ Remotegoat

Jamie Laird and Robert Durbin are both very capable fright night commandeers, who whip up a winning blend of intrigue, humour and suspense… All credit to the set, lighting and sound design trio who have created a genuinely eery atmosphere, taking the audience members’ flights of fancy and – for a short while – making us feel truly unnerved. The Stage

I’d like to think Dickens would have been proud of the whole thing… a fascinating show  ★★★★ London Theatre1

Janes has created a cleverly structured and tightly written piece – steadily building the suspense and intrigue but also allowing subtle moments of humour… The Haunting delivers a spooky night at the theatre that is the perfect way to spend a dark and wintry evening in London. Gay Star News

It is classic horror stuff beautifully directed by Kate Bannister with a fine set by Karl Swinyard dripping cobwebs and decay… Janes provided thrills and chills to run up and down the spine in plenty for the audience. Reviewsgate
