And a few days later, the Fresh Blood Monthly Reading Series for new horror and suspense plays returns with an evening of monster-ific terror! This month at Fresh Blood: Full Moons & Monsters, you'll encounter a werewolf (and the scientist who kidnaps her), a researcher and a photographer who observe mysterious rituals while tracking a yeti, and a man who has been suffering the curse of the dreaded jinn in three new plays that will inspire you check under the bed again and again.
- Wolfsbane by Shannon Lippert
- Sounds in the Wind by Timothy Kopacz
- A Taste of Hell by Maximillian Singh Gill
And don't forget to check back soon for details on The Best of Fresh Blood, an evening of horror one-acts, March 28-31, when you'll see four of our favorite plays from the reading series come to life in full productions! We'll keep you posted on the details.
