The Monster Hunters may have finished its successful run at the London Horror Festival for this year, but there's still some great productions to see at both the Etcetera Theatre and Wilton's Music Hall. Why not check out londonhorrorfestival.com for details?
Of most interest to Monster Hunters listeners will be The Puppetry of Flesh, a new play co-written by Lorrimer Chesterfield himself, Peter Davis.
Using a combination of live actors and puppetry, The Puppetry of Flesh tells the tale of Sam, a man tormented by memories, dreams and voices in his head. As his worst fears are made flesh, terrible secrets about his family are unveiled, and the lines between past and present, reality and fantasy begin to blur. All the signs point to a shocking and violent conclusion. Can he lay his demons to rest before it's too late?
'It's very different to The Monster Hunters, but just as enjoyable.' Peter explained. 'Even though there's humour in it, it's not a comedy. It's a powerful, thought provoking and hopefully pretty scary horror play. And it's got a puppet in it!'
The Puppetry of Flesh runs from 23rd - 25th October, 9.30pm at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) and are available from the London Horror Festival website.
