Description - Haunted Theatres of East Sussex by Tina Lakin

The history of East Sussex theatres is particularly fascinating due to the sheer variety of venues that hosted plays, opera shows and musical entertainment. Tina Lakin's interest in the rise and fall of the many piers in the county where extravagant balls and concerts were held, led her to discover the weird and sometimes tragic tales that have arisen in these spectral structures. Included in the book is a history of entertainment, from Greek tragedies to the rise of the music hall and circus acts through to the modern-day tattooist shows and successful events at Glyndebourne. From the spectre of a waif-like orphan searching for the glamour of the theatre, a phantom orchestra playing on a seaside promenade to the ghost of an unrequited backstage love affair the tales will both surprise and mystify the reader. Illustrated with over fifty unusual images, the tales will enchant the lovers of ghost stories and those interested in the rise and decline of entertainment on Britain's south-east coast. Accompanied by interesting pictures of bygone times as well as some contemporary images, a complete history of area's theatrical hauntings are gathered here. This collection of thought-provoking eerie tales is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the paranormal or theatre history.
