7.30 p.m. Monday - Saturday

Twelve years ago, the world was shocked by the suicide of nineteen-year-old musical genius Julia Lukin. Now Andy has returned to the newly-opened Julia Lukin Music Centre, created by Joe as a shrine to his daughter. Joe in convinced Julia is still there, and wants Ken to find out the truth. Is the ghost of Julia really in the room - or are the only ghosts in the minds of the three men?

With a career spanning six decades, Alan Ayckbourn is one of the most prolific playwrights, with the phrase “Ayckbourn farce” synonymous with his work. But Haunting Julia is nothing like suburban comedies that rose him to fame. An intense play that ramps up tension right up to the end, prepare for a very different Ayckbourn play.
