Listen up and pipe down! You’ve tuned in to the Truncated Nightmare Hour: the horror comedy anthology series where we strongly imply that horrible things have previously occurred.
Settle in with your host Sebastian Owl for an evening of strange tales, odd happenings and top-shelf almond milk.
The Truncated Nightmare Hour is a new podcast co-created by two stalwarts of the London fringe scene: James Hamilton (creator of Casual Violence and Hector Vs The Future) and Molly Beth Morossa (creator of Greywing House and Carnival of Crows) – both London Horror Festival regulars who met while taking part in previous years!
To celebrate the online launch of their new show on Hallowe’en, each night of The Truncated Nightmare Hour: Live! will see a theatrical performance of stories from the upcoming series, set in the shadowy confines of Sebastian Owl’s studio – with a rotating cast, and different episodes every night.
Be ready to meet sad souls and menacing monsters in an atmospheric blend of the sinister and the silly – with the promise of live music, theatrical flourishes, and future sleepless nights for all who attend.
Mon 24th – Fri 28th October, 9:30pm
The Old Red Lion Theatre, EC1V 4NJ
TICKETS: £10 (£8 concessions)

“One of the most exciting and talented comics on the circuit, both as part of a group or as a solo performer” – The Argus

“Exceptionally emotive… Morossa’s storytelling is almost flawless” – The Public Reviews
Sebastian Owl is portrayed by Alexander John Whyman, best known for working alongside James as a writer and performer in Casual Violence – so, y’know, just reread James’s live credits and swap the names round.
