Horror Academy

You haven’t got a hope in hell.

Vampires, cannibals, and zombies populated three one-acts and five monologues by Chicago playwright Darren Callahan. Presented promenade-style in the intimate environs of the North Lakeside Cultural Center, these pieces put horror in the air, blood on the walls, and combat right in the audience’s laps.
