Grave

In a remote graveyard in the Argyll Forest in the gathering October dusk, Jen McGregor finds that she is not alone. Perhaps breaking in wasn’t such a great idea…

In a combination of poetry and prose, Jen delves into a murky world of horror tropes and gallows humour. Can an avowed sceptic keep her cool when the Uncanny comes to call? Does courage extend further than her phone coverage? Should a grieving woman be more alarmed by the headstone with her name on it or the things that lie beyond the wall? Based on a true story. Aren’t they always?

Duration 20 minutes. For booking enquiries contact jen@jenmcgregor.com.
