The Rats in the Walls ~ 2011

Join us in October as we explore and adapt an early short story by one of Gothic Horror’s greatest writers: H. P. Lovecraft. Using Samuel Stong’s House built in 1855 at the historic Black Creek Pioneer VillageThe Rats in the Walls is a sight specific experimentation of madness, familial bonds and the mystery of the unknown. As a man known only as de la Poer reclaims the seat of his ancestry he uncovers the hidden truths of what drove his family to abandon it in the first place.
