Inspired by the classic gothic horror film of the 1930s and heading for Dorset soon is Gonzo Moose’s fast-paced Is That a Bolt in Your Neck? – a clever mix of spooky paranoia, surreal nightmare and frantic farce.
The spooky mood is set with a castle that looms, dark and foreboding, over a small mountain village.
Inside the eerie pile Dr Chekhov, a brilliant and reclusive scientist, is working in secrecy.
Outside, as the villagers prepare for Christmas, they become increasingly alarmed. Strange shadows linger at the castle windows, and every night brings blood-curdling cries of pain.
What is Chekhov doing? What hideous experiments is he perpetrating? What unimaginable horror might emerge from his laboratory?
And will any of it spoil Christmas?
All will be revealed in this gripping comedy horror.
They promise you’ll gasp, laugh and be amazed at the horrific experimentations, the mind-boggling love, and the sensational death-defying finale!
The show is playing at the Allendale Centre, Wimborne, on Sunday November 20 at 7.30pm, as part of the Artsreach autumn season of performances in rural communities.
