The King in Yellow is an original adaptation by our company about the eponymous play that drives its readers insane, based on the Victorian horror anthology by R.W. Chambers (an inspiration for H.P. Lovecraft).
It’s an ensemble story that jumps about between the encroaching madness of Chambers’ original haunting text, and the intertwining stories of melodramatic Bohemian artists whose lives are slowly corrupted by the infection of this insanity. Playing with sanity and madness, our protagonist Castiagne welcomes us to the opening of America’s first Lethal Chamber, investigating the infectious nature of a single idea.
