Beyond is a real spectre-cle
IN THE cold light of day, few of us would admit to a belief in ghosts, but once darkness falls and strange noises emerge from the shadows, it is easy to doubt that conviction.
Beyond, written by David Wrightam, successfully exploits our latent fears and the use of chilling atmospheric music throughout further heightens our tension.
Set during the 1940s, we enter the world of Dunstan Park Children's Home, a house with an unhappy and tragic history a century earlier, which has given rise to talk of a curse.
As in all thrillers, nothing is quite as it appears; as this tale unfolds, we are spectators on two parallel worlds separated by time, or are they?

Each performance of this three-night run features a different cast, allowing maximum participation from among the ranks of Class Act Theatre Company.
On opening night, stalwarts of past productions took a number of the leading roles and this experience added extra bite to the script.
Nicola Law was Olivia Hawthorn, the principal of the Home who invites paranormal investigator Richard Crane, played by Tom Toth, to explore a number of strange happenings they are experiencing.
As he seeks to find an answer, he relies upon Miss Devlin (Maizy Wright) and Father Edmunds (Ashley Draper) to unveil the house's history, its past perhaps being the key to its present.
In his quest, Rachel Dunstan (Fran McNally) assists by utilising her "gift" to sense the presence of those from across the divide.
Among those we encounter in this parallel world are Matilda Dunston (Danielle Stark) and Miss Jessop (Jess Howden), crucial participants in solving this mystery.
Add an array of spine-chilling ghosts, things that go bump in the night, a twisting plot, a healthy dose of the unexpected and relaxation will be the last thing on your mind – another Class Act success.
Beyond is being performed at the Parkway tonight at 8pm. To book a seat, call 01472 290100.
