“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
At the Society of Strange we improvise tales…. Weird Tales.
The Weird Tales magazine reached the zenith of its notoriety in the Edwardian age with a host of writers who reinvented the horror story, taking it into the realm of existential terror. These are tales of the strange, the uncanny and the unsettling.
Each night, the Society will spin three stories inspired by these great eccentric writers – all drawn from audience suggestions and improvised live on the spot.
With Alex Bartram, Joseph Chance, Andrew Pugsley and Adam Meggido.
