Join us for the World Premiere of three never-before-seen horror short-story classics adapted for the stage and presented in one unforgettable evening! Charlotte Perkin Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper, an iconic feminist masterpiece, follows one woman’s confinement and descent into madness. Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death invites us all to the party of the century inside an ancient monastery during a plague. And Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald combines the worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Lovecraftian nightmares into a phantasmagoria of mystery and adventure.
Charlotte Perkin Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper is adapted by Jesse Vale and directed by Catherine Karow.
Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death is adapted by Monica Cross and directed by Katie Wallace.
Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald is adapted and directed by Derek Wohlust.
