H.P. Lovecraft’s THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH opening with WildClaw Theatre

On December 13 (*ahem*…Friday the 13th), WildClaw Theatre opens the world premiere of my adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH.  Tickets are available now!


THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH is the biggest show yet for WildClaw.  Shade Murray is a magician, and the cast and crew he assembled for this production are wickedly insane, and I don’t just mean talented, I mean gibbering, slavering, just-saw-a-shoggoth-for-the-first-time outright mad.  Check out this team of crazies:

You don’t want to miss this one. THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH is the cornerstone of the Lovecraft catalog, and this production is a creative maelstrom. Come to shadowed Innsmouth, where you will face the fear of the Unknown, the fear of the Other, and most horrifying of all, the fear of Yourself.

Ia! Ia!  Cthulhu fhtagn!

Small towns have big secrets.  In the dead of winter, an eager young student of anthropology is pulled toward the strange and isolated village of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, where the only thing more disquieting than the furtive townsfolk is the pervasive odor of death, decay, and rotting fish in the air.  Some say a pagan cult drove all of the orthodox churches out.  Some say there are endless tunnels beneath the town.  And some say they’ve seen devils on the reef by the light of the moon.  But all who hear its name, spoken in hushed whispers throughout New England, will agree on one thing: there is a dark and sinister shadow over Innsmouth.
