What a Joy, what a pleasure, a wonderful treat
to visit the Coffin Works on old Brum’s Fleet Street
Newman Brother’s factory, the place to be
Ghost Stories for Christmas I wanted to see
Don’t Go in the Cellar, a great ‘the-at-re’ show in the dark
as we watched enthralled…they provided the spark!
On a cold night in December we were so entertained
with such exquisite drama, we never noticed the rain
the audiences spellbound with each ghostly tale..
with characters so real, the fear did not fail..
the bumps and the creaks caused us all quite a fright
as each story unfolded in the evening twilight
Interspersed with much humour, the audience laughed,
continuing superbly into the second half!
With a change of a hat, came change of voice,
the journey we took without any choice,
before we all knew it-the drama complete,
in the factory surroundings off Newhall Street,
Victorian drama that so passed the test,
Ghost Stories for Christmas, Simply the Best!!
