The ghost finder has a face

That’s right, Audience with the Ghost Finder has a cast. Playing Thomas Carnacki, the ghost finder, we have Alexander Pankhurst:

Alex read Carnacki when I first started trying out drafts of the play at Blackshaw’s New Writing Nights, so he’s been living with the character for something like a year. You might have seen him as Dr Prunesquallor in Blackshaw’s production of Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast: Titus Groan last April.

And playing Carnacki’s compatriot Dodgson, Carnacki’s haughty client Judith Allenby, and Mrs Allenby’s cursed daughter Florence, we have Ceridwen Smith:

Ceridwen played Lady Fuchsia Groan in Blackshaw’s Gormenghast: Titus Groan. She looked like she was having great fun with Dodgson and Mrs A in her audition, and I can’t wait to see her take on Florence.

For updates from the rehearsal room, don’t forget to follow the pair of them on Twitter – along with @BlackshawUpdate, artistic director @elliepitkin, and of course me, @MJStarling.
