The Arts Before Entertainment Collective Presents a Double Feature: Two New Horror Plays Open October 2013 at Gorilla Tango Bucktown

September 22
10:39 AM 2013
The Arts Before Entertainment Collective (A.B.E.) presents an alternative to scary movies and haunted houses with double horror play feature Strokes Before the Coming of Midnight and Dead. Drunk. Girls. at Gorilla Tango Bucktown, 1919 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. Production runs Thursdays at 7:30 pm from October 10 through October 31, 2013. Tickets are $18 general admission, $24 for onstage seating and complimentary beverages; tickets may be purchased at www.gorillatango.com or by calling 773-598-4549.

One cast performs these two new plays, starting with Strokes Before the Coming of Midnight, a surreal psychological horror play based on a French myth. Deja vu, doppelgangers, and the demons that create them appear in the limbo between good and evil. Exploiting each other's fears and secrets, the cast of characters await the arrival of the devil himself, who is set to appear at the stroke of midnight.

Dead. Drunk. Girls., featuring the same versatile cast, explores the pop culture horror stereotype of the tragically drunk girl. Through the experience of a bartender who's seen far too much, navigate through grind house suspense and cautionary tales of good nights gone bad. Don't forget to tip your bartender...
