Whilst you’re waiting for your next fix of monster hunting, why not pop to the theatre to explore the friendship between two of British horror’s greatest names, as played by stars of The Monster Hunters?

Matthew Woodcock (Roy Steel) and Simon Kane (Sir Maxwell House) will be appearing as Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in The Gentlemen of Horror – Mr. Cushing and Mr. Lee by award-winning writer and producer James Goss (Doctor Who – Dead Air, as well as books for Torchwood and Being Human). The play is directed by Kate Webster. Charting the history of their friendship, the play begins in the 1950s, when Peter Cushing was one of the most famous actors in Britain and Christopher Lee was unknown. We follow them over the next 25 years, as Christopher Lee becomes internationally famous and Peter Cushing gradually retires into a life of quiet obscurity. And yet neither quite lost their taste for blood...

You can catch The Gentlemen of Horror: Mr Cushing and Mr Lee at the Woolwich Grand Theatre from 27th – 29th November. The play will be followed by a screening of one of our favourites, Dracula: AD 1972, which served as inspiration for The Monster Hunters.
