    London Horror Festival 2018

    Bit late to the party on this one but there seem to be a couple of Lovecraft-themed plays still to ...er… play before the festival ends. Looks like it's too late for Pickman's Model, but there's still Providence (29-31/10) and Asenath's Tale: The Thing on the Doorstep (1-3/11) to go. https://www.oldredliontheatre.co.uk/london-horror-festival.html
  2. Looks like the line-up for the London Lovecraft Festival (taking part in February) is up and tickets can be booked. http://londonlovecraft.com/
  3. Tonight my husband and I attended this play, which is touring around Britain and Ireland throughout 2016. We saw it at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews. It’s a one-man show, and I had big reservations before it started about how well that format would work. By the end I still had some reservations, but generally was won around to the idea. The staging is quite minimal. A table with a wireless and lamp on it, a chest, a chair and a lectern. In addition curtains at the back of the stage are lit from behind to give different effects. The play closely follows the original Lovecraft story, presented as a plea by explorer Dyer, trying to prevent a new expedition to the Antarctic, recounting his own experiences, and why it must not be followed. As such the audience is placed largely in the role of the other expedition organisers. Generally this works well, though Dyer refers several times to having photographs that prove things beyond doubt. Of course we never see these, which works well enough in a written story form, but requires a bigger suspension of disbelief in a theatre setting. One of the most effective artifices the play uses is to use the radio prop to present the words of other characters. At the start there is a bit of a scarily long list of characters - straight from Lovecraft’s original story - but it is quickly whittled down to the core single character on stage, Lake who explored the city before him, and Danforth who accompanied him. Lake’s story is presented directly through the radio, which makes sense because his messages were sent back that way. Danforth’s words are also presented that way, which makes less sense in story terms, but is surprisingly effective, and most people probably wouldn't question. I was sitting directly next to the control booth for the special effects and so - unlike probably everyone else in the audience - could hear when keys were pressed to activate sounds etc, for example the radio voices or lighting effects. By far some of the most gripping parts of the play were when Dyer - in person - and Lake - through the radio - were interspersed, Lake presenting his reports and Dyer pleading with him not to do certain things. At times the timing got a little out and the voices spoke over each other, but these were rare slips. Generally this part of the performance was quite electrifying, and extended the performance well beyond just one actor, allowing him to interact with other characters. Another highlight for me was the moment when Dyer has reached the strange city, and describes it. Even though this was presented without pictures, in words, there was a real sense of awestruckness communicated to the audience. Indeed generally I found the depiction of the alien city surprisingly effective, given staging restrictions. For example when the actor swung his torch around, echoing his actions in the massive room in the city, the effect was clear. There were also some almost jump out of your seat moments, as the sound boomed out and spooked the audience. At these points it was probably better not to know the original story, to be more surprised. My husband was with me and had never read the original, but liked the plot, staging and was generally absorbed throughout. Though I think there was a slip near the end, maybe from the theatre, when modern pop/dance music crept in, possibly coming from outside. For some of the performance I had my eyes shut, seeing how it worked as an audio performance, prompted in part by the ushers offering to sell audio versions of the play to theatre-goers. It did work, but I was also thinking about what the visuals added to the story, both over just the pure audio story, and to Lovecraft’s original. Again I’d have to highlight the radio scene, and its sense of desperation and dynamism, enhanced by seeing the action on stage, not just hearing the voices. This part was a very effective reworking of Lovecraft’s original structure. The play wrapped up nicely after just an hour, and the actor received warm applause from the audience. I’d read in advance that it ran for two hours, but I was glad it was just an hour. It is quite intense, for both audience and actor. Any longer I think would have lost some power. I am glad I went, and think that it is a worthwhile adaptation of the original. If you are new to the story it may work better, not going in with any preconceptions. But even those who know the story well could still get a lot out of it. I think the performance has intensity and emotion, which adds to the original text quite a lot. And even though it is a one-man show it is remarkably effective, and tells the story well.
  4. This popped up on my radar (i.e. Ramsey Campbell's Twitter). Image source: PS Publishing 2016 Live from Miskatonic: Ramsey Campbell in Conversation with Stephen Jones Date: Thursday, 15th February, 2018 Location: The Horse Hospital, London Tickets are £10 (plus £1 booking fee).

  5. The following may be of interest if you are within reasonable reach of London. London Lovecraft Festival ("A Week of Eldritch Theatre", 6th-11th February 2018, Camden) The London Lovecraft Festival is a theatrical celebration of the works and mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Taking place over six nights from February 6-11 at Camden's Etcetera Theatre, the festival will have original and gently-loved productions presented to London audiences deep in the depths of darkest Camden. With two world premieres as well as spooky improv and even a Cthulhu lounge act, both Lovecraft novices and deeper initiates should find their palates tickled and their brains disturbed.

    Plot Ideas using Theatres

    Hello, new poster here, so I apologize if I do something wrong. My friend has scheduled a get-together for this Sunday and wants me to do a one-shot Call of Cthulhu adventure. After seeing a show at my local theater, I had the idea of using a local theater as a setting for the adventure, with the basement being maze-like with a Moonbeast inside it or something. Our group is new to Call of Cthulhu so I plan on having an average cult to Nythartolep being the owners of the theater. The problem is that I need a good inspiration for something that the cult is doing that the investigators will need to stop. I'd rather not use Massa de Requiem per Shuggay, as I'd like to save that idea for a later, more serious adventure. Because of that, I'd also prefer it if the motivation of the cult would not be to summon an Outer God or Great Old One, as it would seem redundant if I eventually use Massa de Requiem. One idea I did have (after seeing what I thought was mold in the theater) was to have some kind of evil mold growing in the run-down theater, but I have yet to find anything mythos-related to use for that. So, does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thank you in advance for your time.
  7. The following play may be of interest to Yoggies: "Awake and Asleep", 7.30 p.m. July 20th-22nd, at Treadwell's Bookshop, 33 Store Street, London. This new one-act play by Jessica Burgess will bring our shop-floor to life in an immersive historical drama. Set in 1929 at a party in a Bloomsbury occult bookshop, Awake and Asleep explores how a group of inter-war intellectuals, writers, and ‘Bright Young Things’ are influenced by the occult. The play will be preceded/ followed by a lecture on the history of London’s esoteric bookshops by Caroline Wise, a leading figure in the London contemporary esoteric scene and co-editor of The Secret Lore of London (Hodder, 2016). Tickets £10. https://www.treadwells-london.com/event/19273/
  8. Icarus Theatre are putting on a production of HPL's At the Mountains of Madness on the UK stage in 2016. Source: http://www.icarustheatre.co.uk/shows/mountainsteam.html A tour schedule is available on the Icarus Theatre web site. Here's the trailer: I do like a bit of Lovecraftian theatre! Perhaps a CBC "Special Expedition" may be in order? Anyone else planning on going? Quite a few dates around the UK.
  9. Just went to see Pomona last night at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. It's a weird little play with obvious influences of Lovecraft and of Call of Cthulhu - though it feels very Unknown Armies like too. It's a series of interlocking stories about a metro stop in Manchester - Pomona, which is an isolated concrete island between tram and train tracks and two canals. The flats which were to be built there were never completed, so it's a ghost station. The play ties into all the people who go missing in a big city like Manchester and the retelling of stories and urban myth - as well as a surprising section where two characters talk about their 'Cthulhu Dungeons and Dragons game.' It's very well acted and directed and they do lots of very interesting stagecraft with the lighting and adding a visceral panicked feel to some of the scenes with other clever stage effects. I'd definitely recommend it. I don't know how well it's doing - the reviews seem to be good, but they're pushing tickets and special offers so you might be able to see it surprisingly cheaply. Booking Details here Has anyone else seen it? I think it opened at Cardiff originally, but this is the first run in Manchester.
  10. A play based on Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu at the Old Joint Stock Theatre in Birmingham, England. Friday 6th February and Saturday 7th February 2015. Tickets £10. Link below: http://www.uktw.co.uk/Birmingham/Old-Joint-Stock-Theatre/Play/The-Call-of-Cthulhu/L01015587342/
  11. Hello Yog-Sothoth forumers, I thought you might be interested in what my little group of improvisers have been working on recently. From an idea hatched when playing the Cults of New England Fiasco playset (which is a little generic, but we created some great stories with it), we have developed a ~45 minute improvised Lovecraftian play format - spontaneous cosmic horror on the stage ~ It's gone down really well in Bristol, particularly at the Bristol Imrpvisation Festival in March. However, we're finding that we're only performing to other improvisers. Even though they are really enjoying it, we'd really like to be able to talk to other Lovecraft fans out there and see what they think, especially as the line between performing improvisation and RPGs is so slight... So, that leads me on to a blatant plug - anyone around the Bristol area next week, The Unnamed Improv Group are putting on a night with two improvised Lovecraftian plays improvised on the spot complete with atmospheric sounds and music - 8pm at The Lansdown 25th and 28th April. More details at https://www.facebook.com/unnamedimprov We're also looking what where we should tour in the UK. So - where are you guys based? I see that the forum is based in Leeds. Big community there? And any questions as to what exactly we perform and how closely we stick to various aspects of Lovecraftian stories, please just ask!
