Gormenghast is an ancient city-state which primarily consists of a rambling and crumbling castle. A macabre tale of a dysfunctional family incarcerated in a fantastical bygone age, Gormenghast presents a heart-rending drama set in the shadowy labyrinths of a huge gothic castle. Dare to step inside and enter a world of grotesque characters and mysterious ritual. In this vast crumbling kingdom of corridors and shadows you will encounter a strangely compelling and lurid tale of greed, honour, madness and love.
