Two fabulous stories by female writers from the early twentieth century.

In Elizabeth Bowen’s Pink May, a woman cheats on her husband and is haunted by a female ghost.

In Edith Wharton’s Miss Mary Pask, a woman travelling in Europe visits the house of a friend’s sister, whom she subsequently recalls died a year earlier.

Combined with jazz and music hall songs channelled as if from beyond the grave, Ghost Stories makes for a fantastically frightening evening out.
