Number Ninety

MoLI Christmas Ghost Story

MoLI, in collaboration with the UCD Centre for Cultural Analytics, presents its fourth annual Christmas Ghost Story: ‘Number Ninety’ (1895) by Bithia May Croker, performed by Ned Dennehy.

For years, agents have attempted to secure a lease for Number Ninety, a desirable family mansion, at almost no cost. Long rumoured to be haunted, it has never found a long-term tenant.

Sceptic John Hollyoak sets out to prove that ghosts do not exist. He will spend the night in Number Ninety, with no soul but his dog for company. Will ghostly companions intrude upon his solitude, and will he live to tell the tale?
