ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE
TheatreFusion is proud to
present a totally new production for the Halloween season.
Thomas Gemmell, from TheatreFusion, explains:
"Horror is not simply the gore and violence of the average slasher film, and with HAUNTED TheatreFusion are exploring different ways of presenting horror to a modern-day audience. Gothic, Grand Guignol and Contemporary styles are used to present a series of suspenseful and shocking tales!
"We want to illustrate that individuals can be haunted by many things: memories, regrets, missed opportunities, mistakes, and of course ghosts! HAUNTED explores them all in a fresh exciting format.
"We have brought together four directors, a diverse cast, works by great American authors and brand new writing for this world premiere production, and are proud to be touring to TEN venues in West and Central Scotland."
TheatreFusion have always aimed to provide a variety of plays to Scottish audiences, and HAUNTED marks our first production to support new writing in Scotland.
HAUNTED offers a very different night at the theatre, and some delicious chills for the witching season!
