Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 – Saturday, October 21st, 2017
Playing with apocalyptic themes such as viruses and zombie-like epidemics in which the civilized world is brought to its knees by a global infestation, Launch Pad brings you a mash up of the styles of gothic horror master Edgar Allan Poe and the narcotic fume of 1970’s disco culture.
Audiences are invited to come dressed in their clingiest, shiniest disco attire* and take refuge inside the protective walls of Craigdarroch Castle, away from the terrible blood-plague known as RED DEATH.
Once inside the Castle, and surrounded by the psychedelic soul sounds of the seventies, the audience is separated into different and disturbing tours of depravity through strangely lit rooms and even stranger confessions of sin, cruelty, terror and murder, all adapted from Poe’s many chilling stories.
RED DEATH is bubblegum-pop horror guaranteed to scare the funk out of you.
Not recommended for children under the age of 18.
