As part of the London Horror Festival 2021, Revenge: The Horror Cabaret will scare audiences for one night only at north London’s Pleasance Theatre on Thursday 21 October 2021.
Revenge: The Horror Cabaret is written and produced by cabaret regular Rachael Bellis and inspired by her own experience of being terrified by anything remotely horror-related – “unless”, to quote the author, “it is a musical”.
Rachael and her guests sing their way from Sweeney Todd to Carrie as Rachael discovers just how wonderful horror as a genre can really be. But what happens when it goes wrong and her special guests end up both dead AND in jail?
This musical cabaret horror experience forms part of the London Horror Festival 2021, the UK’s original and largest festival of live horror performance, which takes place in various venues from 18 October 2021 until Halloween.
Joining Bellis to bring Revenge to life — or death! — is director Fergus Rattigan. Artistic director of ShadowMask Theatre, Rattigan’s work has often found him exploring the dark and the supernatural including past productions of The Shaman, The Kingdom, and Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On.
