'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?

Review:

Probably the best ghost story of my childhood . . . when I think back to my favourite books ever, this is one of them. (Amazon reviewer)

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)

Book Description:

A school play can be murder. . .
