CANCELLED - HP Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams
Friday 24th - Saturday 25th April 2020
Venue: The Irving Studio Theatre
"Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a 'Witches' Sabbath or 'Portrait of the Devil.' But only a great painter can make it scare you..."
In these two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to the very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.
Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie and baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.
Robert Lloyd Parry has spend the last 14 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.
