A dramatic telling of two classic tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, the master of weird. Performed by Robert Lloyd Parry.
THIS PERFORMANCE TAKES PLACE LARGELY IN THE DARK!
Two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale.
In them, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to 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 Erich 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. He has been seen performing the tales on Mark Gatiss' BBC documentary about the great writer. He was also one of the first performers at TROUBLE AT MILL.
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.
