Theatre Production Poster Design
I recently got asked by Bring Out Your Dead Productions to create an event poster for their upcoming theatre production of ‘The Rats in the Walls & Other Tales’.
ABOUT ‘THE RATS IN THE WALLS & OTHER TALES’
‘The Rats in the Walls & Other Tales’ is a production being produced for Halloween in the atmospheric setting of Moyse’s Hall.
Adapted from short horror stories by H.P. Lovecraft, M.R. James, and Edgar Allan Poe, it is a disturbing, unsettling, and very creepy night of psychological horror. The main story follows two men, William and Edward, who set up camp in the sub-cellar of an ancient building called Exham Priory (William’s ancestral home).
Since moving into the recently restored property William has been plagued by the inexplicable sounds of hundreds of thousands of rats crawling in the walls of the building. He has called upon his neighbour, Edward, to help investigate the sub-cellar, seemingly the source of the phantom rats. As the pair settle in for the night, play cards, and share ghost stories, they gradually move closer and closer to uncovering a horrific and ancient secret.
I combined elements from the different stories and tried to merge them in to one image, the ghastly, ghostly rat being the centre piece. I used various different stock images to create this piece – I love working with photographic montage styles!
If you’re in the area, I highly recommend you go see this – get your tickets now before they sell out!
