Icarus Theatre Collective presents
At the Mountains of Madness
Icarus Theatre Collective brings a World Premiere to Thurles, the first theatre adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s chilling masterpiece At the Mountains of Madness.
HP Lovecraft, the master of the macabre, is pop culture deity. His Cthulhu mythos has become the inspiration of countless writers, filmmakers, painters, animators, comic artists, and even philosophers.
Long acknowledged as a master of nightmarish vision, Lovecraft established the genuineness and dignity of his own pioneering fiction in 1931 with his quintessential work of supernatural horror, At the Mountains of Madness – the deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition’s uncanny discoveries and their encounter with an untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization is a milestone of macabre literature.
For nearly a century, this cornerstone of weird fiction has thrilled readers with its tale of a disastrous expedition to Antarctica, and the awful implications of what was discovered.
Explorer William Dyer is brought vividly to life by Icarus Theatre’s Tim Hardy as the leader of the ill-fated expedition, trapped and tormented by visions of what he saw.
