“THE GOREY DETAILS
- improv inspired by Edward G”..!

... as we bring the essence of all the whimsically macabre stories of rats, bats, cats, ill-fated children and vacantly formal Edwardian adults in gloomy settings to our live improvised long form theatrical incident for the Halloween season.

No one turned away for too many arsenic filled urns or elixirs of ennui. Come Imagine our darkly delightful cast in surrealist black and white - including Jennifer Simmons, Jonathan Jovel, Jon Wesley Burnett, Rebecca Castelli.
