This Halloween, Coventry’s EGO Arts brings you Mortal, a gruesome tale performed at London Road Cemetery.

One dark evening in 1885, Dr Cornelius Hunter is looking to cut a deal. But finding himself caught between the Crows and the Perkins, he soon discovers he has more to fear from the living than the dead.

Recommended for ages 16+. Content warnings: strong language and violence.
