London Lovecraft Festival: Pickman's Model // Clocktopus Cabaret presents: Night of 1000 Tentacles!

Sun 03 Feb
Join the launch of the London Lovecraft Festival: a rehearsed reading of Pickman's Model followed by cabaret and sorcery!
DETAILS

"Pickman's Model - a rehearsed reading" - 6.15pm

Meet Richard Upton Pickman, an artist shunned by the establishment because of his horrifying paintings. But what kind of company has Pickman been keeping? And who -- or what -- pays a visit to his studio on one terrifying evening? The story is perfect material for Nunkie Theatre -- one-man performances by Robert Lloyd Parry, who is best known for his adaptations of the work of PD James. He's an amazing actor, with a real talent for bringing a story to life and sending a shiver down your spine. Although this is a rehearsed reading, the fright factor should be very high as the original story is one of Lovecraft’s best and Parry is an expert at filling intimate spaces with lurking horror.

Running time: 30 minutes (approx.)

Clocktopus Cabaret presents: Night of 1000 Tentacles! - 7.30pm

On their second expedition, Captain Bang Bang and her trustworthy first mate, Stormina Teacup, set out for eldritch realms. Join them and a host of London burlesque and cabaret favourites, including Dolly Trolly with a brand new Lovecraft themed act, and necromantic sorcerer - er, magician - Chris Benkin with his sleight of tentacle, for an outstanding steampunk/transdimensional night of wonders. You will gasp, you will gibber, you will wonder - where did they hide those eyeballs?

Running time: 80 minutes (including Interval)
