Critically acclaimed smash-hit hybrid ghost-story to tour UK

Experience the “astonishing” Shock Horror, back to excite, unsettle and thrill those brave enough to book following last year’s critically acclaimed, sold-out tour. This “must-see” ghost story combines live performance, illusion, and film to create an “outstanding piece of theatre”, taking audiences on a terrifying journey into childhood nightmares and being afraid in the dark.. Described as Stranger Things meets The Woman in Black, this ghost story is the first of its kind to combine multi-media screen action with live stage performance.

Obsessed with finishing his life’s work, a horror fanatic returns home to a haunted cinema. As his mind unravels, painful memories begin to wake from the dead – but something else waits for him, something much worse.

Shock Horror opens in September at The Churchill Theatre, Bromley, then tours to the Macready Theatre (Rugby), Exeter Northcott Theatre, Theatre Royal Winchester, Wyvern Theatre (Swindon), Palace Theatre (Southend-on-Sea), Beck Theatre (Hayes), concluding at Crewe’s Lyceum Theatre in November.

The cast includes Alex Moran as Herbert, Chloe Proctor as Norma, Joseph 2 Carter as Jack and Chris Blackwood as Karras. Shock Horror is written by Yorkshire-based playwright and filmmaker, Ryan Simons.
