“With the trembling voice of Vincent Price and the sinister presence of Boris Karloff, Clay McLeod Chapman… uses the macabre to explore the humanity of his characters and reveal an almost spiritual side to the horrific. ” – The New York Times
Celebrating its second decade of performances, The Pumpkin Pie Show is a literary fist in the face. Part storytelling session, part boxing match, part shamanistic ritual, The Pumpkin Pie Show has established itself as an all-points artistic hodgepodge of theatre and literature. The goal is to strip away the extraneous periphery of sets and costumes to put laser focus on the text and the performance itself, conjuring up an atmosphere of “creating something out of nothing,” as well as focusing on the ethereal connective tissue between the one telling the story and the audience.
