TWO WEIRD TALES!
Kafka’s Metamorphosis & Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness
...what chitinous, oozing monstrosities await you here?!
"Outrageously fun, horrific good times" - Life With More Cowbell
Double the thrills, double the chills, a double bill full of nightmarish horror, low trash meets high art that fills you up on pulp! Two Weird Tales is a theatrical double bill adapting two of the 20th century’s most acclaimed novellas of the uncanny: Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis and HP Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness, with dark magic, hideous puppetry, and shambling, protoplasmic terrors. The Metamorphosis is Franz Kafka’s famous tale about a man who wakes up one morning to discover he’s transformed into a gigantic insect. Considered by many to be controversial author HP Lovecraft’s greatest work, At the Mountains of Madness chronicles a doomed Antarctic expedition's discovery of an ancient alien civilization rife with cosmic horrors sure to leave you screaming for more.
