Dark Tales Told on a Cold Autumn Eve
About the Play:
Dark Tales Told on a Cold Autumn Eve, a new play written and directed by Jim Dalglish.
Every autumn during a full moon, Sam lights a fire in the hearth of his old, abandoned tavern deep in the woods of Great Island. It’s a signal for the lost and forgotten souls of Cape Cod to emerge from the shadows to share their tales.
A collection of original stories - mysterious and haunting - of the supernatural world of Cape Cod. Written by the author of CCftA favorites “Lines in the Sand,” “Unsafe,” and “Bark Park.”
A perfect Halloween outing for adults with a taste for the macabre.
