”Would it be possible”, asked Sophie Long, “to scare an audience in a live comedy show?” “Interesting question” replied her imaginary audience. ”Why don’t you write a show and see what happens?” So she did.
With inspiration from fairy tales, urban Gothic, and Native American mythology, this storytelling show tells twisted tales of murder, madness and revenge. “Well done”, her imaginary audience said. “That’s the ticket. Also, you’re very pretty.”
