Sharing is Caring, WeGo!

Celebrating local theater is easy when you see the selections being offered this October by Playhouse 38, located in nearby Geneva. Located at 312 E. Stevens, in Geneva, The playhouse is operated by the Geneva Park District.

The theater group is set to perform “The Shadow Over Dunwich” a production by local playwright Jonathan Tobin. The play is inspired by the life and works of H.P. Lovecraft, and follows the famed horror writer during the Spring of 1925. Dealing with a bout of writer’s block, Lovecraft tries to find his muse by visiting the mysterious town of Dunwich, Mass. What begins as a weekend filled with intrigue and inspiration, quickly devolves into something strange and sinister. Lovecraft’s investigation into the oddities of Dunwich forces him to become a character of his own fictional nightmares.

The show is directed by Garrett McCann, and the Stage Manager is Nickolena Sellen. The cast includes Susan Beehn, John Button, Yuma Garland, Remya Joseph, Dan Knauf, Jerome Marzullo, McCann, and Fred Slate.
