The Monkey’s Paw by William Wymark Jacobs presented by Parados Theatre Company
Be careful what you wish for – you might receive it.
A mummified monkey’s paw bestows three wishes on its new owner;
all of which come true, but in a macabre and unexpected way.
The married couple first wish to test the efficacy of the talisman.
Their second wish brings their dead son back from the grave.
Then, in the dead of night, comes a knock at the door – their third wish.
