Hellraiser actor Nicholas Vince has teamed up with London horror theatre company Hidden Basement Productions to present two new psychological horror plays for this year’s London Horror Festival at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden.

Best-known for his role as the Chatterer Cenobite in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser film, Vince has worked closely with Hidden Basement Productions to bring two stories from his What Monsters Do collection to the stage in an extraordinary double bill.

With his collection having been rated an impressive five stars on Amazon, we at The Horror Hothouse are very excited to have been invited along to watch the show, which will be running from the 25th to the 27th October 2013 at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden, London.

The show, also entitled What Monsters Do, will be performed as a double bill with the stories Tunes from the Music Hall and Green Eyes adapted for the stage. The plays will explore love, lust, obsession, blood ties and the dark violence that lurks behind seemingly innocent people.

What Monsters Do is directed by Philip North, who will be a familiar name for those who visited last year’s London Horror Festival where his play The Puppetry of Flesh was a sell-out success. North said: “I’m thrilled that a horror icon like Nick has chosen to work with Hidden Basement to bring his dark stories to life. It’s great to have such rich source material for a project. I think the piece is really unique and a must see for all fans of horror. I’m looking forward to unleashing these two disturbing tales on London audiences.”

What Monsters Do is on at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden at 7:30pm, 25th-27th October 2013

Tickets are just £10 (£8 conc.) and are on sale now. Buy online here or here or call the Etcetera Theatre box office on 020 7482 4857
