Let's Summon Demons
27th June @ Omnibus Theatre for the Engine Room
Is it wise to ask the questions you always wanted to ask?
Let's Summon Demons is a play examining our attitudes to ritual, to revenge and to the uprising of female power. Can community lead to mob mentality? What are ghosts and demons and do they come from below or from within? If you stare into the abyss, can you come back?
Join our coven for one night to encounter comedy, folk horror and - perhaps - some demons.
About writer/performer Katy Schutte:
Katy was in a working coven in her early 20s where she became a third degree Gardnerian/Alexandrian witch. Her Grandmother owned and ran a (haunted) Bed and Breakfast in Wales where the dog would bark at nobody on the stairwell and guests complained of hands around their neck in Room 4. Katy is a maker of comedy and folk horror. And an atheist...
Praise for Katy’s previous work:
★★★★★ Three Weeks (for Who Ya Gonna Call?)
★★★★★ Broadway Baby (for Happily Never After)
★★★★★ Edinburgh Reviews (for Knightmare Live)
