Terror 2010: Death and Resurrection

October 12 – October 31 2010

Featuring plays by Neil LaBute, Mark Ravenhill, April DeAngelis and William Ewart, and cabaret by Sarah-Louise Young.

Returning to Southwark for its second year following a sold-out 2009 season, Terror 2010 sees the venue transformed into a chilling morgue. Four short plays explore horror and reinvent Grand Guignol for the 21st century, all spun together with magic, cabaret and other oddities for the Halloween season.

COUNTRY
by April DeAngelis, directed by Hannah Eidinow
Elaine’s husband has died. But doesn’t he live on in the memory, and in the things he did and may yet do? Something is stirring in the peaceful seclusion of the country.

THE EXCLUSION ZONE
by Mark Ravenhill, who also directs

A couple meet online and venture into the countryside, talking about seeing a horror film upon their return to the city. But real-life horror soon descends, as their inhibitions unravel in The Exclusion Zone.

REANIMATOR
by William Ewart, adapted from the short stories of HP Lovecraft
directed by Adam Meggido

A medical student pursues ghoulish experiments in the dark underbelly of early 20th century America. This is a wild romp through the vivid imagination of HP Lovecraft, acknowledged by many to be the godfather of modern horror.

THE UNIMAGINABLE
by Neil LaBute, directed by Jason Lawson

A voice speaks from the darkness, challenging our perceptions of adult responsibility amidst the myriad dangers that the modern world presents to our children.

‘Massively imaginative. Darkly disturbing and funny. A fringe institution.’ Time Out
