Grand Guignol - Screams of Terror

Grand Guignol - Screams of Terror

Following a successful summer tour, which ended in a sell out performance at the Barnfield Theatre, Exeter, EAT brings to London three short terror plays that explore the darker side of the human condition. Two are by a true forgotten hero of British Grand Guignol, Frederick Witney. The naturalistic viciousness Witney injected into his writing resulted in COALS OF FIRE being banned outright when submitted for a license for the 1920’s London Grand Guignol. A blind woman warms herself by the fire as a younger woman confesses she is having an affair with her husband, with dire consequences!THE LAST KISS is Witney’s darker adaptation of a Maurice Level short story. ‘He’ is blind & badly scarred following an acid attack by his jealous lover. ‘She’, having been imprisoned for the attack, pays him a visit three days after her release…LA MORTE DE L’AMOUR (The Death of Love) is a brand new Grand Guignol play. Three people find themselves in a room bound to chairs. The husband has fifteen minutes to decide who dies: his wife or his lover...Expect 60 minutes of terror as EAT take you on a macabre journey deep into the darker side of the human psyche.
