For this year’s Atlantic Fringe Festival, Taboo Theatre presents two short plays in the style of the early 20th century French theatre of horror by local playwrights Alison House and Ira Henderson.
In the comedy A Terrible Misstep, written by Alison House and directed by Zara Tufts, a wealthy British woman confesses the murder of her husband to a friend in a shockingly cavalier manner. In the horror play How’d You Get Those Eyes?, written by Ira Henderson and directed by Luciana Silvestre Fernandes, two women wake up in a meat locker where they are being held by a doctor with dubious intentions. Laugh your guts out and then get ready for graphic gore in a “hot and cold shower” double bill.
All shows will be at the second stage at Fort Massey United Chuch on 5303 Tobin Street in Halifax.
