Since 2006, Pete Boisvert, Stephanie Cox-Williams and Patrick Shearer have produced the Blood Brothers anthology series (originally as a part of Nosedive Productions, Inc.), which showcases original horror stories LIVE, onstage showcasing a roster of some of indie theatre's most celebrated and beloved authors and artists. Following in the tradition of the original Grand Guignol Theatre, Boisvert, Cox-Williams and Shearer (in collaboration with writers Cassidy and Rogers) have created a sinister institution dedicated to plumbing the depths of the human psyche where the twisted stories are ripped from the headlines and the most horrific monsters are the people you meet every day.
