Blood Squad: All Hallows’ Cleave

Blood Squad & Annex Theatre Present

All Hallows’ Cleave”

As children go happily costumed from house to house amidst lawns festooned with carved pumpkins, dodging Styrofoam headstones and plastic skeletons, it waits. As they pour out their bags of candy onto the soft, warm rug of their cozy living rooms and tear into chocolate, taffy & licorice with delight while an old scary movie drones serenely on the TV behind them, it waits. As the porches slowly go dark, bathing the quiet suburban street in an inky cloak of night, it prepares to strike.

Blood Squad presents a fully improvised show live onstage in the style of Halloween horror.

(Viewer discretion is strongly advised!)

Somewhat beloved and accomplished comedian and storyteller (NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Seattle Weekly’s best comic of 2015, one of City Arts Magazine’s artists of 2015 and other things) will be recording a live stand up album for Aspecialthing Records (www.astrecords.com). Each show will be hosted by Weird and Awesome regulars Travis Vogt and Kevin Clarke and feature prizes, sharing and songs and stories from special guests.

You are loved.
