A satirical ghost story for our times, where the scary history of Hallen collides with scarier goings on in present day Avonmouth

Hallen is a haunted place. Centuries ago, it was Bristol’s dumping ground for the mad and the homeless, where those deemed witches were executed. Dumping is still going on today. A rubbish dump to the south, the chemical works to the north, an oil pipeline destroying the local watercress farm, and the M5 cutting the village in half. And now evil American waste product entrepreneur, Ronald J Dump is moving into Avonmouth and doing deals with corrupt local politicians that could make things even worse…

But help is at hand, as Bristol’s favourite environmental warriors, the Square Wheelers invade a haunted mansion to take on the ghosts of Hallen’s sinister past and the forces bent on destroying its future…

Set against the panorama of Avonmouth’s belching chimneys, this site specific and immersive production takes audiences on a tour of the haunted mansion of Kings Weston House where modern day ghost hunts are a regular feature.
