Wanderlust Theatre Company explores what really goes bump in the night with its production of Mary Jett Parsley’s The Monster Tales.
According to a press release, The Monster Tales, directed by Elsa Dimitriadis, follows a young woman’s discovery of her singular humanity after she finds a monster under her bed and, as the duo develop an unlikely friendship, they share stories with each another about mail-order brides, animals who carry notes from the afterlife and how grief and love are the two most powerful emotions.
The production will also feature a “Bring You Pookie to the Theatre” promotion where attendees of all ages can bring their favorite stuffed friend to the performance for $1 off the ticket price if they purchase tickets in person at the Theatre 810 box office.
The Monster Tales runs Wednesday, Oct. 24 through Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee showing on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 3 p.m. at Theatre 810 in downtown Lafayette.
