You are cordially invited to a spooky storytelling performance by author and actor C.J. Carter-Stephenson. Prepare to be scared as C.J. brings two of his horror stories vividly to life with words, projected images and an immersive soundscape. This readers theatre extravaganza will take you from the wilds of the Old West to a distant future where mankind’s spacefaring aspirations have become a reality.

In the first story, And Justice For One, a cowboy finds himself being haunted when he accidentally kills a child in a saloon. Taking its cue from horror pioneers like M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe, it’s an eerie tale of gambling, gunfights and things that go bump on the prairie. Next on the programme is Destination Earth, a creepy science fiction story in the vein of movies like Alien and Event Horizon, in which an astro-investigator travels up into space to find out why a mining ship has failed to reach its destination.

C.J. will be performing Tales in the Key of Terror on the following dates as part of the 2024 Brighton Fringe Festival:

  • Friday 3rd May 2024, 7.30pm at St. Mary’s Church, 61 St James’s Street, Brighton, East Sussex BN2 1PR
  • Saturday 1st June 2024, 7.00pm at Brighton Toy and Model Museum, 52-55 Trafalgar Street, Brighton, East Sussex BN1 4EB

See the spooks, hear the screams and have a howling good time. Dramatic and fast-paced Tales in the Key of Terror is an event you won’t soon forget.
