Blackshaw Arts Hour – Episode 90

Ellie & Matt are on their holidays, so here’s a quick fix of the Blackshaw Arts Hour to keep you going –

Black Shuck Episode 3 – we’ve heard the tale of legendary Black Shuck, and poor old lopsided Rob’s Dad – we basically had the bejesus scared out of us – so, what was that terrifying noise?!

Talking of terrifying, we can now reveal that Blackshaw’s Scare Slam will be back at the London Horror Festival in October! Details here.

 

Black Shuck at the London Horror Festival: A Review

black-shuck-banner

“Played by Alexander Pankhurst, it’s an enjoyable portrayal of this geeky character who is able to precisely name different birds by their call alone. He provides a wonderful foil to Martha played by Rachel Nott, a bolshie and dominating woman. The two of them are a comically incompetent pair.”

 

“There is a particularly well thought out lighting and sound design by Andrew Crane who helps to transport us to the night-time Norfolk Coast and give the play some eerie atmospheric effects. The aeroplane landing lights is particularly effective. The one simple piece of set, a groyne, also works wonders.”

“engaging and dynamic…boundless energy and spirit…a little bit silly, a little bit scary and thoroughly worth a watch!

“The chemistry of Nott and Pankhurst…make this thoroughly entertaining to watch…a taut play that manages to walk the tightrope of genres but playing to the strength of all
