'This play we're doing, it's not true, is it? I mean, there never was a Sweeney Todd who killed people?'
Jackus never wanted to be in the school play, but he didn't have much choice.
Now he sees that what's unfolding on-stage is more than just acting, more than just pretend. Strange things are happening. Terrifying things.
Ghostly footprints. Unexplained whispering. The touch of a cold hand in the shadows . . .
What has been woken by the play's dark words? Can Jackus stop it, or are the actors doomed to play out the tragedy to the bitter end?

compulsive reading (Junior Bookshelf)
a thoroughly nightmarish and at the same time utterly convincing ghost story (Times Educational Supplement)
a well-wrought plot . . . vividly-drawn characters, and a unity of setting, oppressively enclosed. (Times Literary Supplement)
A school play can be murder. . .
