R.C. Sherriff's supernatural drama, produced in 2014 for the first time in sixty years.

Christmas Eve, 1951. As Britain rebuilds itself after the war, John Greenwood has it all - a successful business, a beautiful house and an aristocratic wife. But as he bids farewell to the guests leaving his annual Christmas party, a gust of wind slams the front door shut, starting a chain of events that makes him doubt everything he has ever known.

From the writer of one of the 20th century's most acclaimed plays, Journey's End, The White Carnation is a ghostly tale of one man's chance to do things differently.

"The humour is light and subtle, the dialogue engaging... It is clearly the work of an excellent playwright." - Time Out London

"A theatrical ghost by RC Sherriff comes back to life... What a neglected little treasure it proves: not life-changing, maybe, but life-affirming." - Telegraph
