Caroline Sabin presents Mysterious Maud’s Chambers of Fantastical Truth
Mysterious Maud knows a fantastical truth – a truth so terrifying it has driven her mad.
Mad I tell you.
Is this new knowledge the doorway to a dream or a nightmare?
That, best beloved, is entirely up to you.
Caroline Sabin (maker of A Curious Zoo and Blood on the Snow) is back for Halloween – this time hosted by Insole Court, an extraordinary gothic mansion in the heart of Cardiff. Rich and atmospheric, this charismatic building will play host to a sophisticated haunted house experience where the cast consists of some of the most exciting multi-skilled performers currently working in Wales and beyond.
At the chilling heart of this show is the fantastical truth of the title – that our sensed experience of reality is completely fluid, relative and contextual at best. Observe Maud's diabolical experiments in perception and shiver as reality slides through your fingers.
As you wander freely through the eerie corridors, tower and staterooms you will encounter mad scientist Mysterious Maud (Lara Ward), her faithful sidekick Igor (Rowan Talbot), the Psychiatrist (Gerald Tyler), Frankenstein's Butler (Jon Gower), the Groundskeeper (Kim Noble), her Dog (Hugh Stanier), the ghost of Juliet Capulet (Maddy Smedley) and the fortune telling Aunt (Caroline Sabin). Like a cross between live art and Gothic Horror - it's going to be a scream...
