"While hitchhiking on a snowy winter's night in Maine, a college dropout meets and falls in love with a girl he'd do absolutely anything for.  Morrison is going to quit smoking whether he wants to or not… but is the cure worse than the disease?  And Fletcher, an ex-reporter from the New York Times, is being held in an interrogation room in a foreign land, with only his wits to protect him," describe press notes

In addition to these one-acts, the evening will also present vignettes based on King's Survivor Type, Paranoid: A Chant and The Last Waltz. The evening will be directed by Pete Boisvert and Patrick Shearer.

THE BLOOD BROTHERS PRESENT…THE MASTER OF HORROR features graphic violence and is recommended for adults only.

Since its formation in 1999 by director Pete Boisvert and playwright James Comtois, Nosedive Productions has enjoyed pushing the proverbial envelope with its plays.  One of the company's original plays, THE ADVENTURES OF  NERVOUS-BOY (A PENNY DREADFUL), was hailed by Martin Denton as "one of the best directed and best produced indie theatre shows" of 2006 and was published in the New York Theatre Experience's Plays and Playwrights 2007 anthology. Its 2007 play, SUBURBAN PEEPSHOW, has recently been published by Original Works Publishing. The company is Mr. Boisvert, Mr. Comtois, Rebecca Comtois (Artistic Associate), Patrick Shearer (Artistic Associate) and Stephanie Cox-Williams (Company Manager).
