Following a sell-out run in 2009, prepare for more Terror as the 2010 season Death and Resurrection takes Southwark Playhouse back to its reported wartime roots as a morgue, seventy years on from the Blitz.
In this unique annual festival, three world premieres and a classic adaptation together reinvent Grand Guignol for the 21st century. The four short plays are interspersed with cabaret from award winning songstress Sarah-Louise Young and eerie oddities for the Halloween season.
April De Angelis is currently under commission to the Royal Court Theatre, National Theatre, Manchester International Festival and Paines Plough. William Ewart has previously adapted two other plays for the Terror Season, Neil LaBute is a Tony nominated writer, most recently represented in the West End by his play Fat Pig, Mark Ravenhill is an Evening Standard award winning playwright. His recent writing/directing credits include Over There at the Royal Court Theatre.
‘Massively imaginative. Darkly disturbing and funny.’ Time Out
‘Unlike almost anything you will see on the London stage. Fast becoming one of the highlights of my theatrical year. A real delight.’
WARNING: Terror 2010 contains scenes of a shocking and disturbing nature which some people may find distressing. Strictly 16+.
