Fringe performer quits claiming venue is haunted

A performer has quit a show at the Edinburgh Fringe after claiming the venue was haunted.

Singer Stacey Smith says she suffered "terrifying" psychic episodes performing in the Gilded Balloon's Caves 2 venue.

She has refused to return to the venue after just four shows with Sketch Club.

The producers of Sketch Club, Andrew Barclay and Brian West, said they were disappointed to be losing a member of their cast after only four shows, but accepted her decision.

Stacey said: "During two of our preview shows, I heard and felt hot breath on the back of my neck, and an overwhelming sense that someone was standing behind me on stage.

"I've had nightmares ever since, and now nothing is going to get me back into that place."

Stacey will rejoin the group, Sketch Club, when it re-starts its weekly residency at Downstairs At The Kings Head in London.

"We obviously don't want Stacey to go," said Barclay, "But we're certainly not going to force her to go into a place that she finds frightening or uncomfortable."

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.

                                                a hot breath feeling and an overwhelming sence that someone was behind her while on stage, yep its haunted.

either that or there was a draft from the air conditioning and someone was standing behind her, such as a stage hand.

Sounds similar to the stories about the Drury Lane Theatre in London. There, it is reported, the actors/actresses who are not giving their best during a show are kicked 'up the bum' by an unseen presence in order to evince a stronger performance.
