TWO WEIRD TALES!
Kafka’s Metamorphosis & Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness
...what chitinous, oozing monstrosities await you here?!
"Seriously bone-chilling... engaging theatrical experience: it was oddly thrilling" - Lights Up Toronto
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.
"A whimsical, campy celebration of Kafka and H.P. Lovecraft. Intimate, eerie, goofy spectacle. And surprisingly faithful, even with the puppets & magic!" - Istvan Reviews
"Two Weird Tales is a fun, freaky, fascinating night out at the theatre! With an intimate space and creative storytelling methods, it’s a truly unique experience!" - A View From The Box
