HP Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams

Fri 01 May, 8:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £13 (£11 concessions)

Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a real artist can make it scare you…”

In these two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, the American master of ‘the Weird tale,’ an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie, baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.

Robert Lloyd Parry has spend the last 13 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.
