Strange Tales from the Chapel Perilous

"I had to fool them into thinking I was still human. I was dubious that that was still possible. I had barely been able to see myself in the bathroom mirror, I’d grown so pale as to be almost translucent."


There is an imperfection in the human mind - a crack, a flaw, a crevice - one that fascinates and repulses all those who find it. It is empty of all but impulse and appetite and the memory of hope. What if you looked over the edge? What if you fell? And after the fall, what would you see in the mirror?

Spend an evening watching six brand-new, never-before-seen horror plays! Adapted from the collection by phillip andrew bennett low, our half-dozen directors feature both established and up-and-coming talent. This is the road map to your own personal inferno, fondly dedicated to everyone who is dying...especially you.

WARNING: while the individual plays are still being developed, the collection on which they are based contains tales of horror and dark fantasy, and consequently some disturbing and violent imagery, including depictions of sexual assault.


Currently seeking actors who are in their 20s-60s or can pass. Auditionees should come prepared with a 2-minute contemporary dramatic monologue. There may also be cold readings from the script. Please bring a resume- a headshot is recommended but not necessary. Non-equity actors only.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Phoenix Theater requires proof of vaccination and masking for entry.
