Are You Sitting Comfortably?

7.30pm. £8.

They say we always get the monsters we deserve, that they are simply a dark reflection of ourselves, our fears and our desires. But what makes a monster?

Are they amoral, inhuman beasts, eyes glittering with madness? Or beautiful and seductive beings, tempting us to sin? Or, worse of all, misunderstood creatures, unfairly hunted, lonely, unloved?

We will look at them in the eye, with an evening of short stories read aloud, chosen and read by the team at White Rabbit. The evening will include B-movie visuals, monster mash music from the 1920s to now, ghastly games, free food served by a lycanthropist waiter, and blood drenched cocktails. On a full moon. Join us. There’ll be the stench of goat. You will not have sweet dreams.
