'A richly theatrical hour of madness and the macabre' **** (Stage). 'A masterclass in physical comedy' ( Life is a hideous thing. And Lovecraft's was no exception. Prepare to be amazed, terrified, and driven insane! Dominic Allen (Belt Up Theatre, A Common Man) and Simon Maeder (Superbolt Theatre), fresh from winning Show of the Week Award at VAULT Festival 2018, present a darkly comic journey through the life and works of America's most infamous horror writer, HP Lovecraft, whose weird tales showed the world that there are horrors beyond human control and understanding.
