Sugar and spice and all things nice?

Sugar and spice and all things nice?


I’m a bit of a fan of horror. It’s easily one of my favourite film genres and I do love a good horror story at bedtime to send me off to sleep while I’m still worrying about the monsters under the bed.

Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber is actually one of my favourites. It’s creepy, and contemporary, and erotic, blending folklore and feminism with a touch of bloodlust. It gives me the shivers – in a good way.

I’m thrilled then that Jessica Lucia Andrade is returning to Proteus Theatre to bring Carter’s collection of stories to life. Featuring an all-female cast this production features aerial work, circus skills, physical theatre, a gothic design and a haunting soundscape to really bring it to life.

Take a trip to the dark side with Proteus Theatre’s The Bloody Chamber, coming to Worthing Theatre this summer before a UK tour in 2022.
