About the show

An evening of two horror one acts from Human Pincushion Productions, a new company devoted to bringing horror works to the stage.

From the show:

THE MONSTERS YOU MEET IN THE DARK is a duo of one acts, two terrifying an twisted tales of tragedy and horror coupled together in one thrilling night of theater. 

"IT TOLD ME TO" - In the 1970's, after Savannah murders her fiancee at the behest of a demon she is committed to an asylum where she meets Corrie, a young woman who may not actually belong in there. The two form a companionship that is put to the test as the demon continues to demand Savannah commit grizzly acts of murder.

"THE WOODS LISTEN" - A group of old college friends meet to go camping for a weekend to celebrate an engagement. After nightfall, increasingly strange and horrific things begin happening and one by one some are picked off. There is something in the trees that is hunting them. And one of the people in the group may not be who they say they are.

It’s really hard to do horror on stage

See it if You love horror and want to support it no matter what

Don't see it if You are expecting a thriller that will keep you at the edge of your seat

Also I’m giving this some extra points for the attempt. I love horror and I... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Cliched, Great staging, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you are a fan of horror, like simple sets/costumes, and want to support a new theatre company.

Don't see it if you expect a masterpiece or something wholly original. Avoid if you are triggered by abusive relationships or don't like loud screams.

Also This show had a lot of potential, but ended up falling flat in a coupl... Read more Read less

Good actors but direction was lacking, leading to shouty, buffoonish over-acting, Sadly, i found it excruciatingly bad, Very "community theater," see because your friend is in it, Good costumes, Disappointing

See it if You want to support this group; you have a personal connection to the group; you want an excuse to visit Williamsburg.

Don't see it if You find it hard to sit through well-intentioned but bad shows; reminded me of teen theater at the YMCA but with much better costumes/makeup

Don't see it if you expect extravagant sets or costumes.

Great staging, Quirky, Entertaining, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you like to support one-acts, love seeing interesting technical effects onstage, or are looking for a low-stakes night of spooky stories.

Don't see it if you're looking for a fully developed work that will blow your mind or give you an entirely different perspective on theatre or horror.

Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you want to support emerging artists; you're a curious horror diehard who wants to see a new co. try their hand at it. Great makeup & sound.

Don't see it if you don't like screaming onstage; violence or implied sexual assault are a trigger for you.

Also I tip my hat to Human Pincushion- it's awesome to want to produce more... Read more Read less

Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing, Entertaining

See it if It's simple. If you love horror novels, films, or TV shows this is for you.

Don't see it if If you don't like horror in your books or on your screens this is not for you. It might be too intense for younger or more religious viewers

Also Every single cast member delivers a solid terrifying performance with ... Read more Read less
