THE HOUND: Midnight. Late December, 1937. Reed, a discredited archeologist and Aesthete, is running for his life. Having stolen an ancient amulet from the fetid grave of a neglected Holland churchyard, he locks himself in the library of his London townhouse in order to evade the pursuit of some 'malign being.' In shocking detail, he recounts a gruesome testimony of unnatural occurrences surrounding the totem's theft… and the appalling consequences for all who come to possess it.  Critically acclaimed for his solo adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (2003 NYSCA Grant award-winner) and Edgar Allan Poe's The Cask of Amontillado and The Black Cat, playwright/performer, Greg Oliver Bodine, brings this classic, short horror story by H.P. Lovecraft to thrilling life.

I AM PROVIDENCE: In the realm of horror literature, H.P. Lovecraft's reputation as the supreme cultivator of terrifying worlds and visions is unrivaled. However, there is one world so horrifying, so hopeless and bleak, that even Lovecraft himself couldn’t have imagined it: a life in the theatre. Written by NY Innovative Theatre Award-winning playwright Nat Cassidy (Any Day Now and The Reckoning of Kit & Little Boots), I Am Providence is a series of Lovecraftian adaptations and musings that highlight the master's insights into our own ephemeral wants and fears, as well as an original portrait of a struggling actor and his reasons for connecting with such morbid material. It is a journey into the heart of an artist that is part biography, part abstraction, and all horror.
