The Enfield Haunting

Based on the first-hand accounts of one of the ghost hunters, The Enfield Haunting is the true story of what happened when a dedicated single mother tries to protect her three children from something that is incomprehensible, deeply disturbing and is hurtling to a terrifying conclusion.

Catherine Tate and David Threlfall  star in the world premiere of this major new play by Paul Unwin (co-creator of the world’s longest running medical drama Casualty).

The Hodgsons had no idea what a poltergeist was when, in the summer of 1977, furniture and toys started moving of their own accord. They were an ordinary, working-class family, who lived in a North London council house at 284 Green Street, Enfield, but for the next eighteen months became the centre of one of the most famous poltergeist events in the world.

Janet , the possessed 16 year old, was nearly pulled out of a window. The local lollipop lady saw her floating six feet in the air in an upstairs room and Janet was found fast asleep in a neighbour’s bed. There are tapes of Janet growling for hours in a voice that doctors said would destroy a 16 year old’s vocal cords after a few minutes.

Paul Unwin ’s new play is the story of one night in the spring of 1978 when events were approaching a climax. Based on the first-hand accounts of one the one the ghost hunters, The Enfield Haunting is the true story of what happened when Peggy Hodgson tries to protect her three children from something that is incomprehensible, deeply disturbing and is hurtling to a terrifying conclusion.

Maurice Grosse was one of the ghost hunters. A kind and protective man, he was determined to help the Hodgsons  but as the night unfolds it slowly becomes clear that he is searching for something that he is convinced that only Janet can help him find.

C atherine Tate, who is renowned for her TV, film and theatre work, including her current BBC series Queen of Oz, The Catherine Tate Show and Donna Noble in Doctor Who alongside David Tennant , will play Peggy Hodgson , a single mother who tries to protect her three children from something that is incomprehensible and deeply disturbing.

David Threlfall , who played Frank Gallagher in the highly acclaimed TV series Shameless, is an Associate Artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company (he played Don Quixote in the RSC’s production of and last year was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in Martin McDonagh’s The Hangman, plays Maurice Grosse , a ghost hunter.

Catherine Tate, David Threlfall to star in new West End play 'Enfield Haunting'

Angus Jackson directs this paranormal production that will play at the Brighton Theatre Royal and Richmond Theatre prior to its limited West End run.

Bea Maynard

Catherine Tate and David Threlfall will star in a new play, The Enfield Haunting , at The Ambassadors Theatre from 30 November 2023 to 2 March 2024.

This production is based on the true story of the working-class Hodgson family, who begun to experience paranormal events in their North London house in 1977.

Tate will play Peggy Hodgson, a single mother who's trying to protect her three children from the strange poltergeist.

“I’m thrilled to be part of The Enfield Haunting and can’t wait to start working with the first-class creative team and the brilliant David Threlfall.” The actress said in a statement.

Threlfall will star as Maurice Grosse, a ghost hunter determined to help the Hodgson family, but as the events continue, he realises it might be slightly beyond his range of expertise.

Paul Unwin wrote this paranormal play based on first-hand accounts from one of the ghost hunters that helped in the 1977 Enfield house.

The writer said in a statement, "Before Guy Lyon Playfair the poltergeist expert died in 2018, I spent a long afternoon with him in his basement flat in Earls Court. He and Maurice Grosse had spent months with the Hodgson family trying to protect them, but also make sense of what was going on. What Guy told me was terrifying. So much of what appears to have happened was impossible to fake and yet at the centre of the whole thing were real people trying to make sense of their lives"

Catherine Tate is a renowned actress on both stage and screen. She is currently starring in BBC series Queen of Oz , and has also played title roles in television series including Doctor Who , The Catherine Tate Show , Big School , and The Office .

David Threlfall, who played Frank Gallaghar in the TV series Shameless, is an Associate Artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in Martin McDonagh's The Hangman last year.

Further cast and creatives are yet to be announced.

David said: ‘ I’m delighted to be reuniting with director Angus Jackson and working for the first time with the amazing Catherine Tate on Paul Unwin’s version of the UK’s most famous incident of psychological inhabitation,  The Enfield Haunting, in 1977.’ 

The Hodgson’s had no idea what a poltergeist was when, in the summer of 1977, furniture and toys started moving of their own accord. They were an ordinary, working-class family, who lived in a North London council house at 284 Green Street, Enfield, but for the next eighteen months became the centre of one of the most famous poltergeist events in the world.

The local ‘lolly pop lady’ saw her floating six feet in the air in an upstairs room and Janet was found fast asleep in a neighbours’ bed. There are tapes of Janet growling for hours in a voice that doctors said would destroy a sixteen-year-old girl’s vocal cords after a few minutes.

More information about The Enfield Haunting

The Enfield Haunting features Catherine Tate ( Doctor Who ) as Peggy Hodgson and David Threlfall ( Shameless ) as investigator Maurice Grosse. The play is largely inspired by a first-hand account of the events, told to playwright Paul Unwin by Grosse’s colleague and fellow ghost hunter Guy Lyon Playfair. He played some of his audio recordings from the investigation for Unwin over afternoon tea, who was mesmerised.

For eighteen months back in the late 1970s, neighbours, investigators, and journalists tried to decipher the mystery of the Enfield Poltergeist that was said to be haunting a home in North London. Some people became convinced that Peggy’s daughters, Janet and Margaret, were behind it all. While Janet supposedly admitted to deceiving journalists, she later retracted her statement; paranormal investigators were divided over whether or not they believed her. The true identity of the person (or spirit) behind the hauntings remains unknown to this day.

What to watch for

  • Catherine Tate is no stranger to the stage and won an Olivier Award for her performance as Beatrice in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing opposite her Doctor Who co-star, David Tennant.
  • David Threlfall is best known for his portrayal of Frank Gallagher in the British TV series Shameless. His performance earned him a BAFTA TV Award nomination for Best Actor.
  • The infamous Enfield case has also inspired other retellings, including Sky Arts 2015 TV show The Enfield Haunting and the 2016 film The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case .
