The Call of Cthulhu
Perfectly captures this descent into insanity
This article is from 2010.
HP Lovecraft’s most famous work is brought to the stage in this one-man show from Michael Sabbaton. Lovecraft’s tales of horror were always about unknown evils lurking in the shadows, tendrils of madness creeping into the consciousness of his protagonists, and Sabbaton perfectly captures this descent into insanity as he switches between characters, hinting at great and hideous wickedness as elder gods rise from the depths.
