The Ghost Light Anthology Poster


On October 18th, 2018, Aberrant Theatre will launch The Ghost Light Anthology, something that will bring scares and keep people up at night. Man, you seriously can't go wrong with an event that takes place in a historic building that used to be a coffin factory.

It’s 2018, and monsters are inescapable – on our screens, in the headlines, and often in our own neighbourhoods. Toronto based Aberrant Theatre is making the most of that fact to unleash The Ghost Light Anthology – an utterly unique live horror experience, just in time for Halloween.

“The world is a scary place right now, and in times like these the horror genre always thrives. When humanity doesn’t know where else to look, we tend to stare into the darkness,” says Aberrant co-founder Andrew Gaunce. “The Ghost Light Anthology gives audiences a whole new window into that abyss, and we’re confident that Toronto audiences won’t be able to look away.”

The Ghost Light Anthology is a theatrical collection of five cautionary tales with a focus on modern day monsters. It’s an immersive “haunt” style experience. It’s a summoning ritual. It’s going to have you checking under the bed, in your closet, and behind the shower curtain. The proceedings will begin at 8:00pm sharp on the following evenings: October 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, and 27th, with a closing performance on Halloween night. The event will be held at The Box (89 Niagara Street) – a historic building that operated as a coffin factory as recently the 1970’s.

From director Jordi O’Dael: “The atmosphere is the most important part. I want to offer people an experience they can't get sitting on their couch. Live performances have such a wonderful opportunity to engage people and to disassemble the idea of a ‘captive audience.’ People want to feel something – whether it's joy, discomfort, sadness, or fear – and it's our job to let them.”

Featuring a stellar cast comprised of Jacob Free, Lucy Meanwell, David John Phillips, Frances Samson, Michael Sutherland, and Kate Werneburg, as well as written work by acclaimed playwrights Trace Crawford, Jared Michael Delaney, Grant MacDermott, Jake Martin and Katerina Watson, The Ghost Light Anthology is set to become Toronto’s newest Halloween tradition.

He's the puppet master. You don't see him, but he pulls the strings that gets things done. He's the silent partner. He's black ops. If you notice his presence, it's the last thing you'll notice — because now you're dead. He's the shadow you thought you saw in that dark alleyway. You can have a conversation with him, and when you turn around to offer him a cup of coffee, he's already gone.
