Winner of The Salford Star Best Play of the Year Award
Written & Directed by Joe O'Byrne

England, 1953.

Renowned American parapsychologist Doctor Roy Earle, famous for discrediting hauntings and exposing
fake mediums, is invited to attend a seance in Blaine Manor, said to be the most haunted building in

However, Earle’s arrival awakes something horrific within the manor’s walls. As a raging storm closes
them off from the outside world, Earle and his companions find that what is waiting within the manor is not
nearly as horrific as what has entered with them.

In the spirit of M R James, England’s most accomplished ghost story writer (Casting the Runes, Whistle
and I’ll Come To You My Lad, The Haunted Doll’s House) and with a nod to the classic black and white
film classics of Columbia Pictures, Metro Goldwyn Mayor, Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox.

O’Byrne’s award winning production is a love letter to both the Golden Age of Hollywood and the Hammer
Horror Era. An appreciation of the fabulous characters played by the likes of Vincent Price, Peter
Cushing, Bette Davis, Peter Lorre and more.

It’s a thrilling haunted house chiller set in a manor with a twisted history of madness, witchcraft, tragedy
and death, it's the new The Woman in Black.

Shocking reveals and really fantastic character work from the cast, The Haunting of Blaine Manor feels
plucked out of the old BBC Ghost Stories for Christmas and is highly recommended
