Stories To Tell In The Middle Of The Night To Embark On Community Tour
Stories To Tell In The Middle Of The Night plays at The REP from 9 - 18 February. Created by REP Foundry alumna, Francesca Millican-Slater, this amusing and gripping collection of short, quirky tales is reminiscent of Roald Dahl's stories for adults.
