Bride of Cthulhu

Bringing back an Overtime Theater staple, writer Christopher Lombardo puts a radio-inspired spin on the Bride Of Cthulhu. In the new adaptation, the play will rely less on visual performances while keeping the original essence of the characters and witty dialogue. Lombardo says he thinks an old-style radio drama will better anchor the play to its original tone. The Overtime Theater staged the first version of the Bride of Cthulhu in 2015. The play follows two women who just inherited the fortune and estate of their late uncle. In a creepy twist, strange occurrences begin to take place at the estate. According to actress Liz Vermeulen, the special sound effects will help to really draw the audience into the world of the play. In the adaptation, Lombardo added a narrator (who serves a similar function to the narrator in A Series of Unfortunate Events) to bring context and contemporary commentary to the play. “I think it’s going to hit people pretty well,” Lombardo says. “It’ll bring a new flavor to something people may have already seen.” The Bride of Cthulhu is the first chapter in the Bride Mythos Saga written by Edward E. Wise II. The second installment, Cthulhu Too: The Stranger in Yellow, will run from July 21 to August 12.
