Voices From The Grave
Buildings should consist of "beauty, utility and firmness". Angela says the same about people. But lose one and it all falls apart...
The Lie by Lynn Ferguson
Tuesday 7th March at midnight

High Royds hospital is a majestic Victorian mental hospital lying empty nowadays.

Its extensive grounds boast a derelict farm, its own wood and 4000 unmarked graves.

Security staff don't like to work there any more, for at night, they hear the shuffling of elderly slippers and footsteps on the grand staircase.

Lisa has left her life in Scotland to join her lover - Colin - in Yorkshire. She tries to be the perfect girlfriend but there is something wrong: When she stumbles across High Royds one day, her whole life changes... Why isn't Colin the man she first met? What happened to Brian? Who is Martha? And why is Angela so familiar?

The Cast:
Lisa..............Lynn Ferguson
Colin.............Ian Dunn
Angela..........Leslie Ash
Mother.........Janet Brown
Caretaker.....Geoffrey Beevers
