Special Order—Subject to Availability

Gothic, witty and theatrical, the plays in this collection will introduce readers to an irresistible and highly original dramatic voice. Visit Eric Woolfe's world?if you dare The three works included in The Eldritch Plays are populated by some of the wildest creatures ever seen on a Canadian stage. Sideshow of the Damned brings us a panoply of Woolfe characters: mad scientists, werewolves, would-be necromancers and ghouls?juxtaposed against the quotidian, to great comic effect. In The Strange and Eerie Memoirs of Billy Wuthergloom, a small boy leads a fairly ordinary life until puberty, a succubus, and a strange friend named Herskill Fischmascher take him places he never wanted to go. And in the critically-acclaimed Grendelmaus, two co-workers have to deal with an evil mouse made immortal by eating the dead flesh of Grendel?as well as a finicky work supervisor, an eccentric mother, an ancient book of spells, and, naturally, love. Woolfe's unique style uses live actors combined with puppets, simple stylized special effects, humour, and horror.
