DIRECT FROM EUROPE – A BREATHTAKING NIGHTMARE LIVE ON STAGE
From acclaimed Swedish theatre-maker Jakop Ahlbom comes an immersive visual spectacular that has to be seen to be believed!
A woman returns with two friends to her family home. A house now haunted by family tragedy, mystery and a vengeful spirit that soon makes itself known to them. The only way to survive? To confront the atrocities of past and present.
Using the kind of cinematic horror effects rarely seen in theatre, Ahlbom will make audiences shudder with fear at the seemingly impossible events unfolding before them. A homage to the film genre, this show is a technical tour de force; expect levitations, vanishings, apparitions and dislocations as bodies disappear, blood spurts and a dismembered hand crawls.
Having thrilled audiences in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris, this spine-tingling and thoroughly entertaining live experience will have you on the edge of your seat!
Recommended for ages 15+. Contains adult themes and simulated violence.
