£12 Full Price (£10 Concessions) · £10 Restricted View (£8 Concessions)

Three actors spin three tales of the weird, macabre and uncanny. If you thought improv was only comedy – prepare to be spooked!

Sometimes hilarious, sometimes disturbing, The Society of Strange explores the thin line between comedy and horror - between this world and the next… Inspired by the works of Neil Gaiman, HP Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Algernon Blackwood, Jules Verne, HG Wells, Mary Shelley, MR James and many others.

From Extempore Theatre, creators of Olivier award-winning Showstopper! The Improvised Musical. Extempore Theatre has played The National Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, The Royal Court and the BBC.

There will be spooky pre-show entertainment in the bar from 7.15pm (music, puppetry and magic) and cocktail concoctions available to order. Audience members are encouraged to come in their finest Halloween attire.
