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.
