Le Fantôme de Canterville

Le Fantôme de Canterville

The CCI is delighted to be taking part in France’s national Night of Readings “Nuit de la Lecture”. Actor Théophile Choquet will read the French version of Oscar Wilde’s novella The Canterville Ghost in the beautiful surroundings of the chapel. This clever parody provides an entertaining twist on the traditional gothic horror story – an American  family moves to a castle haunted by the ghost of a dead nobleman who killed his wife and was starved to death by his wife's brothers; despite his best efforts, however, the ghost cannot succeed in scaring the new occupants away!
