Award winning comedian Elf Lyons is delighted to announce the release her critically acclaimed play “Gorgon: A Horror Story” as a digital audio play on 15th March.
“Its twisted tale of sizzling flesh, abusive relationships and mysterious disappearances is punctured by moments of deliberately bathetic humour and the odd satirical swipe at the trend for true-crime podcasts.” - Chris Weigand - The Guardian
“Elf Lyons’s quirky shows are undefinable which is always a good thing. They break the boundaries that put theatre, comedy and performance art in distinct boxes.” - Lyn Gardner - Stage Door
“An evocative, terrifying play that meddles with the audience's perception of the genre turning the spook factor up to the max”. - ★★★★★ BROADWAY WORLD
“Sick, disgusting and as darkly funny as it’s possible to get, guaranteed to delight fans of classic horror” - ★★★★ BRITISH THEATRE
GORGON: A HORROR STORY which entirely sold out its first weeklong run at VAULT Festival in February 2020, was originally conceived as a live immersive horror, designed to prey on the senses, using live sound with expert foley and horror tricks inspired by the gruesome Le Théâtre du Grand- Guignol’s famed Parisian naturalistic horror shows
of the early 20th Century. Focusing on the still taboo subject of female anger, the show explores what happens when we are just pushed too far. A mild-mannered taxidermist
encounters one too many mean-spirited people, loses her temper and decides to experiment with the human form...
GORGON has been deliberately constructed to combine the everyday with the gruesome and the humdrum with the horrifying. In this the new audio version, the team have stepped up the foley to truly set the grisly scene – resulting in a horror show delighted to delight and scare in equal measure.
