Horror – Gothic Tales and Dark Poetry
14:00 @ Banshee Labyrinth (Venue 156) Aug 4-6, 8-13, 15-20, 22-26th
PBH’s Free Fringe

Bunbury Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This show is a beautifully performed collection of prose and poetry from some of the best horror writers ever to have put pen to paper. It contains a selection of classics but also highlights some pieces that the audience may not have come across before. Not only that but it is wonderful to hear a duel language show with some pieces performed in German and some in English. This adds texture and such depth to an already superb show making it so easy to lose yourself in it.

Isabel Schmier has a powerful stage presence which is at once subtle and commanding. Schmier is a born storyteller with expert poise and obvious passion enriching the experience. The phrase ‘breathing new life’ springs to mind when watching this performance.

If horror and spoken word if your thing, this is 100% the show for you. Go see it and escape in to the endlessly tempting world of horror and darkness. Seeing this show in the Banshee Labyrinth is an added treat which makes it totally unmissable and an absolute pleasure to watch.
