The Poltergeist concerns the strange activities of a mysterious spirit in a country vicarage. This was the first production to be performed in the new West Chiltington Village Hall. The drama was increased for the Friday night audience when the curtain came down on the first act and the house lights went up ....and then out again! Luckily it was only a blown fuse and the rest of the evening continued as normal.
