Adapted from the classic tale of H.P. Lovecraft.
Based on the original story from 1926, The Call of Cthulhu creates the seminal horror world of Lovecraft’s science fiction terror. The story revolves around three related tales concerning the strange influences of an ancient, malevolent ‘god’ residing in the depths of the ocean and in the slumbering minds of men, waiting to rise again to ultimate dominion. Appealing to a cult audience across an expansive popular culture, The Call of Cthulhu stands as an epic influences on the horror/sci-fi genre. Full of subtle terror, Sabbaton weaves this character driven tale into a one man tapestry of atmospheric, intimate theatre.
‘Definitely the best Lovecraft adaptation on the Fringe. Ever’ Fortean Times
‘Movingly poetic and quietly terrifying…A chilling, mesmerising adaptation’ Three Weeks
‘In portraying five very different men each driven mad by forbidden knowledge, Michael Sabbaton cycles from commanding through unsettling all the way to full-on disturbing, but is never short of captivating…The Call of Cthulhu is potent indeed’
