“This is where things get really, really scary. I looked at the front, scary, I looked round the side, scary, I looked around the back, very very scary.”

A spooky house, a lost ball and a brother and sister for whom things are about to take a sinister turn.

Gotcha! was the story of Sarah and Sam and a very strange old man on a mad mission to transform himself back into a child when lightning strikes.

This comic, contemporary Frankenstein tale was full of fast action, laughs and some serious thrills, and toured nationally to venues.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
