Weird Tales for Halloween

Weird Tales for Halloween

Three classic stories that ask the question, “What IS that thing?!?!”

Hardcover Theater is proud to present three classic stories never before seen onstage. In “The Beast with Five Fingers,” a man is haunted by a severed human hand. In “Lukundoo,” an African witch-doctor pronounces a terrible curse on a British explorer. And in H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror,” something unspeakable tries to enter our universe by way of a small New England town.

Your host is a malevolent Librarian. The stories provide chills without gore. And there’s plenty of comedy. Suitable for all ages.
