IF YOU’RE scared of water, best avoid the Mill Studio at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre next Thursday and Friday (February 26 and 27).
Two tales of terror based on the stories of HP Lovecraft will be performed – and both classic chillers involve the depths of the ocean.
Actor Michael Sabbaton has devised The HP Lovecraft Chronicles and will kick off each evening with The Temple.
It is 1917. When a strange ivory, carved head enters the possession of the commander of the
U-29, the boat becomes cursed and spirals into dissension, with nightmares, odd feelings and visions of dead sailors starting to haunt the crew.
And then an explosion permanently disables the U-boat’s ability to surface and as it is pulled to the depths by an uncharted, underwater current, a demonic siren song begins to drive the crew towards insanity and death. Can the commander resist this force?
The show will conclude with The Call of Cthulhu – a classic tale revolving around three related stories concerning the strange influences of an ancient, malevolent ‘god’ residing in the depths of the ocean and in the slumbering minds of men, waiting to rise again to ultimate dominion.
