The Experiment by Mark Ravenhill Psychogeography by Lucy Kirkwood Twisted by Anthony Neilson Some White Chick by Neil LaBute
Four new short plays exploring horror and Grand Guignol, spun together with magic, cabaret and other oddities for the Halloween season.
The Terror Season’s previous appearances have divided critics, had some audience members fleeing in fright, and won a nomination for the Peter Brook Empty Space Award.

Lucy Kirkwood’s play Guns Or Butter featured in the 2007 Terror Season; Tinderbox premiered at the Bush Theatre. Anthony Neilson’s recent London credits include God In Ruins (RSC at Soho) and The Wonderful World of Dissocia (Royal Court). Mark Ravenhill is an Evening Standard Award winning playwright. He has also performed in his play Product at the Royal Court, and A Life in Three Acts with Bette Bourne at Soho Theatre
