This live horror show will scare the hell out of you


Australia will play host to a surreal live-horror performance in September, promising gory special effects only usually seen in the movies. Probably don’t take your squeamish friends along. 

Written by Jakop Ahlbom, Horror is a slapstick collection of black humour, magic tricks, physical movement and illusion. 

The plot centres around a haunted house, and during the play you learn the horrific backstory to the dwelling’s lingering spirits. 

It’s literally been described as “hardcore horror”, so if you’re an adrenaline junky who loves a good scare, make sure you grab some tickets for a night of entertainment.
