TERROR 2011 – Love Me To Death

Looking for something to do this Halloween season? Look no further! Britain’s only annual season of Horror Theatre and Grand Guignol has landed in London.

TERROR 2011 – “Love Me To Death”

What the hell is that? Read below…

WHAT?

The Grand Guignol, made popular in late-Victorian Paris, became one of the most notorious and frightening theatrical events of its day. Terror began in 2004 at the award-winning Union Theatre in Southwark, followed by a period at the Southwark Playhouse. With an eclectic mix of classic, cult and comic book horror, the seasons have developed into Britain’s only annual season of Horror Theatre and Grand Guignol. The controversial event has consistently sold out, divided the critics, and in 2007 was nominated for a Peter Brook Empty Space Award.

Previous seasons have included the world premiere of Mark Ravenhill’s Ripper, Anthony Neilson’s first play Normal, and 2007 saw the first ever revival of Noel Coward’s The Better Half - a manuscript rediscovered by academics at the University of Glamorgan and originally written for London’s Grand Guignol in 1922.

Don’t believe us? Here’s some quotable praise for the Terror seasons

‘An entertaining night out which mixes the gruesome and the giggly to good effect.’ The Guardian

‘Pulling out all the stops for this night packed to the cobwebby rafters.’ Metro
