Common Ground Present Ghost of the Toll Point Light @ John Peel Centre for Creative Arts

The year is 1900 – the dawn of a new century. Young Jack Grimes arrives to take up his post as assistant to the keeper of the Toll Point Light, off the coast of East Anglia.

Isaac Troop has been keeper at Toll Point for 20 years, without the need of an assistant. His self-imposed solitude is threatened by the new arrival – is he there to assist or to replace him?

Guessing that his bosses at Trinity House have doubts about his mental fitness, he hesitates to tell Grimes about the other inhabitant of the lighthouse, as that would likely mean the end of his career.  But Isaac is not the only one disturbed by the newcomer.

Ghost of The Toll Point Light, in the context of a good old-fashioned ghost story, also explores questions around why people seek seclusion, some as a means of escape or of atonement, some as a way of finding peace or achieving enlightenment.

Common Ground Present Father Brown & The Curse of The Christmas Fairy

Common Ground Present Father Brown & The Curse of The Christmas Fairy @ John Peel Centre for Creative Arts

The Suffolk village of Dangleford is hanging by a thread! As Xmas approaches, its veneer of civility is cracking, like last year’s Yule Log. A series of poison pen letters, signed “The Christmas Fairy”, threaten to expose corruption at the heart of village life. As the mulled wine simmers, old grudges reach boiling point. Even Father Brown’s renowned frosted plums may fail to get the party going! He must use all his wits to stop the midwinter madness snowballing into…a snowball of terror!

Common Ground present another of their much-loved festive comedy mysteries.
