All-Ages Doors: 6:00pm, Curtain: 6:45pm Based on HP Lovecraft’s celebrated short story, Call of Cthulhu distills the sprawling investigative story and condenses it into a single sequence of moments of heightened tension and drama. Themes of insanity, doubt, faith and fear weave in and out of the narrative, culminating in an ending that’s as challenging as Lovecraft’s work can be.

For the last six years, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is finally bringing the good time to the US. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals,…
