Tales from the Phantasmagoria

A horror-comedy by Danse Macabre Productions

21 May 2018 | Visit website

Brought to you by ‘Les Enfant Terribles’ 2018 Award Nominees, Danse Macabre Productions, Tales from the Phantasmagoria is a brand-new long-form improvised horror-comedy that follows lost souls as they figure out how and why they died. When three strangers wake to find themselves in a dark room with nothing but an audience watching them and a malevolent host who won’t explain what’s going on, they can only assume one thing: They’ve died and ended up in hell. With a little help from the audience it’ll be a night that’ll split your sides (literally and metaphorically)!

Since the dawn of time, human beings have told scary stories to confront their fears of what may be lurking under the bed. Adding their own unique twist to tales of humour, horror and fantasy, Danse Macabre Productions aim to make the dark that little bit lighter. With their ‘bloody tongue-in cheek’ style, innovative staging and surreal experimentation with genre, it’ll be a ‘danse’ you’ll never forget.

Tales from the Phantasmagoria will be at The Old Red Lion Theatre on 21 May. Tickets are £10.
