HOOTING & HOWLING is a true story of soul searching, wise cracking and good old fashioned ghost hunting.
Join talky talker Phil Spencer and banjo picking songstress Julia Johnson for a comedic journey through life, death and the Great Unknowable.
HOOTING & HOWLING is a tale of one man’s induction into the realm of the supernatural and his desperate efforts to resist being an atheist ‘know it all’ as a group of eccentric hobbyists attempt to make contact with the unknown, armed with only torches and a packet of ginger snap biscuits.
Weaving a heartfelt and fright filled tale with a handful of new songs by the utterly magical Julia Johnson, HOOTING & HOWLING is simple story telling at its very best.
"An entertaining and enjoyable evening and will no doubt win Phil Spencer new audiences." (Theatrepeople)
"Julia complements Phil's comedic storytelling with her intimate mastery of banjo (played with slide and violin bow) and Celtic, mystical and hypnotic lyrics, reminiscent of Enya, Jewell, with a touch of Stevie Nicks." (Weekend Notes)
"...a piece that made me happy in a quiet and thoughtful way, something that is overlooked in our crazy world...the straightforwardness of the telling and Phil’s effervescent stage persona breathed life and depth into creating the world." (SYN Radio)
Suitable for audiences 13+
