Description: The Visceral Company (who gave us the memorable “They’re Not Zombies” a few years ago) offers this portmanteau of six short plays inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft, including “The Outsider,” “The Picture in the House,” “Cool Air,” “Nyarlathotep,” “The Cats of Ulthar” and “The Statement of Randolph Carter.” This is the Los Angeles debut of the show, which previously was staged in New York. All text is taken directly from Lovecraft’s writing, and realized on stage with shadow play, puppetry, and storytelling.
Directed by Dan Spurgeon (who created the concept), “Lovecraft: Nightmare Suite” stars Andrew Bourgeois, Devereau Chumrau, Maya Eshet, Nicole Fabbri, Daniel Jimenez, Steve Peterson, Eric Sand, and Mark Souza.
The play runs on weekends (Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays) from September 27 through November 3. Friday and Saturday performances start at 8pm, Sunday performances at 3pm.
Tickets are $20 at the door, $10 in advance.
