Summary Performance History
SynopsisTwenty years ago, Eric, due to quit as pub landlord, won the Lottery, but he never got to enjoy his winnings or his new life in Torquay. Poisoned by his wife and buried out back by her and his lover, his spirit was condemned to haunt the pub as long as his remains stayed undiscovered.
Ten years ago, desperate to attract custom to the pub, Lillian advertised a Supernatural Talents evening, but her husband Roy’s scepticism was further heightened when their only takers were Lorelle, mistaking it for a talent competition, and Yvonne, keen to peddle her spells and potions. Frustrated and scoffing, Roy called on any lurking spirits to come on down...
Today, with Roy profitably demonstrating mediumship on the other side, Lillian discovers she has similar talents on this side, but the result of her impromptu séance comes as a big surprise to the current residents of The Yew Tree.
