A Night of Grand Guignol
August 18 - 27, 20162132 Market St., Denver, CO
Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol was a Victorian theatre in Paris that specialized in showcasing the most stylized, gory and shocking horror theatre in the world. Founded in melodrama, the Grand Guignol’s plays were meant to stun and terrorize audiences; and the theatre even boasted an on-staff doctor to resuscitate victimized patrons. Join us for a night of classic Grand-Guignol, showcasing two short horror plays originally performed at the theatre in Paris. The night is directed by Hart DeRose, featuring works adapted by acclaimed playwrights Tami Canaday and Ellen Graham, underscored with the killer music of Teacup Gorilla. Performances are August 18th through the 27th, starting the bloodbath at 8 pm.
