Thrill seekers, spiritualists, lovers of magick, the occult, the ghoulish and the grotesque, step right up. Have we got a show for you. The show of all shows, in fact, where God’s mistakes and mischief will be celebrated on stage for your bewilderment and delight. Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, we give you PLAY DEAD, an enormously entertaining live performance film directed and co-written by the legendary Teller (of Penn & Teller), shot by Dark Stars Rising author Shade Rupe and performed by the supernaturally charismatic and brilliantly funny illusionist/sideshow performer Todd Robbins, who co-authored the show. What is it, you ask? Nothing less than a no holds-barred recreation of the live midnight spook shows of yesteryear, a macabre history lesson, a discourse on evil, a black love letter to the art of storytelling, brought to life with continuous stabs of comedy, touches of tragedy and glowing theatricality. On this night, you will witness a spectacular reenactment of an old world séance hustle, meet serial killer Albert Fish, spend time in the company of a hungry circus geek, be told true ghost stories and so much more. You will love every second of it.
