BRANDISHING the soggy end of a severed arm, Cornish playwright Carl Grose announces, gleefully: "There will be loads of blood."
Carl Grose, who admits to being fascinated by horror for as long as he can remember, was commissioned by Plymouth's Theatre Royal to recreate the gruesome scenes experienced in Grand Guignol's heyday.
Surrounded by stumps, severed heads and entrails designed by Francis O'Connor, Carl explained his reasons for plundering the themes of a long-dead genre for the basis for his new play.
Carl has written numerous plays for theatre over the years, including Scorched, Quick Silver and Laughing Gas. He has also written for BBC television and radio and been a writer and actor for Kneehigh Theatre for 14 years, on shows that include Tristan & Yseult, The Bacchae, Cymbeline, and Blast! His play, Superstition Mountain, for o-region, opened at The Drum last month and is currently touring.
"I've always quite liked horror," he said.
"When I was writing it the temptation was to lampoon the shock value of the whole genre," said Carl.
Grand Guignol by Carl Grose is at the Drum Theatre from Thursday, October 29 to Saturday, November 14.
