The Shop of Little Horrors

The Shop of Little HorrorsT0682221823
How do you scream without moving your lips? Grimlake's Emporium of Novelties: a dilapidated shop on the outskirts of Nowhere, where corny magic tricks and strange puppets collect dust and cobwebs. No one has entered the shop for years, but that's just fine by proprietor Albert Grimlake - a man obsessed with puppets. Particularly ventriloquist dummies. Each face lovingly crafted by his own hand... and each bearing an uncanny resemblance to customers, friends and family long gone. But Grimlake is growing old and won't last forever. He has no son and no successor. Time is running out to find someone to keep the Emporium open, someone to breathe life into his creations, someone who shares his peculiar passion for puppets... Enter Eric. He's young, He's eager. He's seen all the Muppet Movies, twice. He's the perfect applicant: keener than mustard and easily moulded. But Eric discovers there's so much to learn... The Shop of Little Horrors is a dark and twisted horror show with a wicked sense of humour, featuring a macabre collection of characters. Using extraordinary puppets, masks and props, Pickled Image has created a show to rival their sell out international successes, Houdini's Suitcase, Hunger and Late Night Wolf Tales.
