The Gathering Returns

Hopeless lovers.

Quiet babies.

True crime.

False faces.

A writer’s retreat.

Life. Death.

Eternity.

 

Following a sell-out performance in 2019, Felix O’Brien and friends return to the Beacon for another blackly magical evening of tear-jerking, rib-tickling, spine-chilling horror.

 

Gather round again.

Laugh. Cry.

SCREAM.

Our cast of very talented community actors will delight you with comic darkness when Marilyn Monroe, Baby Jane and Hylda Hogden amongst others sit down for a gory three course meal.

Come and see what they serve, how they get along (hint – they don’t!) and enjoy the experience.

 

This is a short piece running about 30mins and is ideal to see after you have experienced the spooky tour here at the Beacon.

Beacon Arts Centre | 7.30pm
Purchase tickets via The Beacon

Trapped in a lighthouse on Hallowe’en, a plucky crew entertain themselves sharing terrifying tales of Inverclyde’s past. Galoshans, ghouls and graverobbers all have a part to play in this mildly horrifying evening’s entertainment. The performance is presented as a live radio play, accompanied by artwork and illustrations all devised by Beacon Young Company and Kayos throughout October. The piece will feature a performance of the classic Galoshans Play, an adaptation of another local spooky folktale and more!
