Molotov Theatre's 2014-15 Season to Feature 'NIGHTFALL,' THE MARGINS & 'NEIGHBORHOOD 3'
Molotov Theatre Group, Washington DC's only horror- and suspense-based theatre company, is issuing a call for directors for its 2014/2015 season, which includes "Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe," "The Margins" and "Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom." Interested directors are encouraged to submit their credentials for any of the shows of the season.
Additionally, Molotov will workshop "Gallery," by CJ Tuor, a play about five of Batman's arch nemeses, trapped together after an explosion in Arkham Asylum. Molotov will use the workshops to refine the work for a possible full production of "Gallery" in a later season.
"This is a season of plays that deal with supernatural themes," said Molotov Founder and President Alex Zavistovich. "Molotov's audience members range from traditional theatre-goers to our loyal Fringe fans to followers of other horror- and suspense-themed entertainment, and we hope this season hits them where they live. Whether it's other-worldly spirits or the ghost in the machine, these shows will let Molotov will do its uniquely deep dive into the dark world of the unexplainable."
The season's plays include:
· "Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe" by Eric Coble - Fall 2014 (November/December) - Was Poe insane or psychically tormented? From the author of "The Velocity of Autumn," this play dramatizes four of Poe's best known works: "The Raven," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Classic horror is brought to the stage.
· "The Margins" by David Skeele - Spring 2015 (April) - Based on the true story of The Philip Experiment in Toronto in the 1970s, five paranormal investigators and a skeptical reporter visit a haunted manor to create and raise a spirit as a psychic experiment - until that experiment goes horribly better than they imagined.
· "Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom" by Jennifer Haley - Fringe Season 2015 (July): A psychologically addictive video game emulates players' actual neighborhoods as the on-screen environment. Moving from one level to the next means destroying armies of zombies. But what does it mean for the neighbors who aren't playing the game?
Directors interested in being considered for the season should send resumes and expressions of interest for particular shows to Alex Zavistovich at email@example.com
