Another great upcoming event to celebrate Lovecraft’s birthday, August 20th at the Central Congregational Church in Providence. From the event description:
Join us as we celebrate the 124th birthday of author Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) with a double-bill of Lovecraftian entertainment!
First, experience a journey into madness as H.P. Lovecraft’s horrific masterpiece, “The Call of Cthulhu” comes to life in this twisted one-man performance from storyteller David Neilsen. Discover a world of forbidden knowledge, dark cults, and ancient secrets leading to an apocalyptic encounter with a terrifying behemoth from beneath the sea and beyond the stars. Sanity not included–or guaranteed…
Then, take a “sitting tour” of locations in Lovecraft’s Providence. In this informative and entertaining slideshow, Lovecraft scholar Donovan K. Loucks–webmaster of The H.P. Lovecraft Archive at HPLovecraft.com–will present photos of dozens of places on Providence’s East Side related to Lovecraft’s life and works.
Tickets are $12 per person. Street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Although the presentations are kid friendly, it is not recommended that children under 10 attend due to the dramatic nature of David’s performance.
This event is a joint production of Hamilton House, The H.P. Lovecraft Archive, and The Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council.
Donovan Loucks has been instrumental in helping to launch our Lovecraft Readathon, and this event promises to be a perfect complement to it. Don’t forget to buy tickets in advance here!
