Eldritch Theatre's 20th Abominaversary: The Harrowing of Brimstone McReedy
2019/20 Abominaversary 20th Season Celebration!

The Harrowing of Brimstone McReedy, NOMINATED Best New Play and Best Performance at the 2017 Dora Mavor Moore Awards, by Eric Woolfe (House at Poe Corner, Doc Wutherglooms Haunted Medicine Show)) who uses puppets and close-up magic based on the Faust Legend. An eerie tale of unholy larceny and Klondike gold. Based on the sworn testimony of the miserable souls who survived this terrifying ordeal. Strange things loom in the midday moon, where lost men moil for gold. Our hero, Brimstone, is caught up in the Canadian Klondike Gold Rush of 1897.  An alchemy of historical fact, ancient legend, true stories of Old West grifters and card sharps, the works of HP Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood and Robert Service, and a good deal of heartbreak and whimsy, this epic tale tells the story of a two-bit conman and how he lost his true love to the dark spirits of the North as a result of his greed and lust for gold and the sure thing game.

"In the world of punk-tinged, Victorian-gothic puppeteering,
Eric Woolfe must rank near the very top." - The Globe & Mail

Directed by Dylan Trowbridge came to rehearsals, Looking for fun and danger and sin to lure the audience in, then blind side them the darkness of our world. With music by Jude Haines and lightening by Kaitlin Hickey the design of your experience led by Melanie McNeill was to evoke a Den of Sin.

"Fantastic sleight of hand tricks...captivate the audience and pull them into the
Lovecraftian world of Brimstone McReedy."- Mooney on Theatre

Try your courage with enhanced ticket option of the post-performance demonstration of Gambler Cheats and Confidence Tricks both Natural and Supernatural held in the Creepy Basement of the Theatre.
