WildClaw Theatre is thrilled and chilled to announce that this Monday, 2013’s coveted Bloody Axe went to Chelsea Paice, for her grotesque story of the WORST. COMMUTE. EVER: We Apologize for the Inconvenience!
Susan, Jim and Derrick do not have TIME for the CTA’s shenanigans this morning, but that doesn’t stop them from being stopped for a medical emergency. Missy can’t do anything but “apologize for the inconvenience,” as tempers flare, time wastes, and our rapid transit system produces the worst headaches since Ventra took over. Performed by Justine Turner, John Ferrick, Anita Deely, Chris Rickett and Darren Stephens, and directed by Kevin Theis, the director so nice that he’s now won TWICE, Chelsea’s terror train offered us the opportunity for thrilling performances, shockingly squeamish sound effects, and some, shall we say, stirring visuals.
The daemons of WildClaw are hard at work bringing our previous Deathscribes to the website for your aural pleasure. As always, we are immeasurably thrilled for the contributions of ALL of our playwrights, directors, actors, musical guests, sponsors and patrons for making Deathscribe 2013 a roaring, thundering, flarping success. Deathscribe is a celebration of scary stories, more importantly, Deathscribe is a celebration of YOUR scary stories. We cannot make this unique event happen without our audience, our brilliant, bold, beautifully twisted audience, and every year, we learn, grow, sprout, mutate, explode…well, we get even better, is where I was going with that, and that is thanks to you, our wonderful fans.
Submissions for Deathscribe 2014 will open in the spring, and while we’ve put away all of our things that go bump in the night for another year, WildClaw’s Dismember December is far from over. TONIGHT, we move into The Athenaeum Theatre to begin teching for our next production, “The Shadow Over Innsmouth,” adapted by Scott T. Barsotti, directed by Shade Murray. Join us as we explore this classic by American horror visionary H.P. Lovecraft, as Regina Olmstead learns the hard way that something fishy is going on in Innsmouth.
