“remarkable… compelling…stunningly amazing performances”

-Black Gate Magazine

A school haunted by troubled children, an encounter with the unknown on open waters, the mysterious disappearance of a friend in the woods. Three different characters, three different time periods, three spine-tingling tales of abduction and the intrusion of the uncanny into the lives of those who are taken, those who do the taking, and those who are left behind.

Multi award-winning theatre creators and multi-award winning horror and speculative fiction writers team up for this chilling new show from the producers of the smash hit, The Elephant Girls. These internationally renowned queer, Canadian, fiction authors now tackle writing for the theatre.

Kelly Robson, “Skinless”

In 1989, while teaching Canadian Literature at a university in Edmonton, a nun reveals her past as a young instructor at a haunted school full of troubled children in 1950s Ireland.

Amal El-Mohtar, “The Shape of My Teeth”

In 1827, a woman reflects on her best friend’s mysterious disappearance in Mortimer Forest on the Welsh border. She refuses to be left behind.

A.M. Dellamonica, “Repositioning”

In 2021, a seasoned entertainer on the lesbian cruise circuit grapples with memories of an encounter with the unknown in 2018 while on a Pacific Ocean repositioning cruise headed to Vancouver, B.C. from Sydney, Australia.

“Three memorable stories, delivered by a master storyteller.”
