This just pinged on my radar: http://www.londonhorrorfestival.com/
Is this of any interest to anyone? Anyone think we could make a meetup out of it? If so which show(s)?
London Horror Festival is London’s independent festival of horror in the performing arts. Bringing together a thrilling selection of theatre, comedy, music and performance from across the UK, it seeks to showcase the wide range of talent and imagination which the genre can inspire.
The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton, in collaboration with Theatre of the Damned have developed a programme which reflects the power of the macabre to shock, to move, to titillate and above all to entertain. In its inaugural year the festival contains disturbing adaptations of classic horror fiction, bold new writing which stretches from slapstick to psychodrama, from grisly comedy and the blackest of humour to shocking revivals from across the history of onstage horror. The dead shall rise, the guilty will batten on the innocent and the people in the front rows may leave splattered in gore.
With three shows running each evening, and a host of special events to be announced, we hope you’ll join us for London’s first winter of horror. This year, Halloween is only the beginning.
