The Black Vault
Saturdays in September and October
Hideout Theater

     "Improv is inherently comedic, but it's always our goal at The Hideout to push ourselves and the art into new vistas," said the Hideout Theatre's artistic director, Roy Janik.  "Lovecraft, of course, would caution us to not push too far lest we be driven crazy."
    To that end, the woefully insane narrators of the Hideout Theatre will take audiences on journeys through a wide chaotic universe, filled with beings of unspeakable power that are, at best, unfeeling - and at worst, malevolent - toward the creatures crawling on the surface of this bubble of protoplasm we call The Earth.  The result is The Black Vault: Improvised Horror in the Style of H.P. Lovecraft, the new improvised stage show running Saturday nights in September and October at The Hideout Theatre.
      H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) remains one of the most influential horror writer the world has ever known.  The pioneer of "cosmic horror," Lovecraft's tales are populated with unfathomable horrors and elder gods existing in a world teetering on madness.  The Hideout Theatre cast of improvisers will create that world, live on stage, through a suggestion from the audience, and stage a new show every weekend.
    Performances run Saturdays at 8 p.m. and tickets are $12 for general admission.  The Hideout Theatre is located downtown at 617 Congress Avenue.  For tickets and more information, call (512) HIDE-OUT (443-3688) or visit
