PROVIDENCE: The Shadow Over Lovecraft
Following many successful years of work with their respective shows and companies,Dominic Allen(Belt-Up, A Common Man) andSimon Maeder(The Jurassic Parks, Licensed To Ill) are joining forces to create a fun & frightening physical comedy about the Godfather of all modern horror: HP Lovecraft.
“Life is a hideous thing.” - HP Lovecraft
Prepare to be amazed, terrified, and driven insane! Great Cthulhu may be sleeping beneath the sea, but in Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft can’t get a wink.
Join the morose and miserable Howard Phillips Lovecraft, author of ‘The Call of Cthulhu’, ‘Shadow Over Innsmouth’ and other weird tales, as he contemplates the many mistakes that make up his life. His father went mad when he was four. He suffered a mental breakdown when he was eighteen. He lived with his overprotective mother until he was thirty. He loathed seafood, loved coffee and hated immigrants. Indeed he despised anyone who wasn’t an 18th Century English Gentleman. Himself most of all. Or maybe immigrants. Lovecraft's losses were fortunately our gains as his enigmatic, tortured mind would give birth to a body of work we now consider as the foundations of the modern horror genre.
Using physical comedy, live music and all the classic horror tropes you can rattle a chain at, ‘Providence’ explores a wretched life and asks a haunting question: can any love be salvaged from one so filled with hate?
The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind. - HP Lovecraft
Providence: The Shadow Over Lovecraft is created and performed by Dominic Allen and Simon Maeder. Lighting Design - Ina Berggren. Sound and music - Wilfred Petherbridge.
Simon Maeder has been creating theatre professionally since 2011. He is a Lecoq-trained, physical comedian who is best known for his work with his award winning company, Superbolt Theatre (creators of ‘The Jurassic Parks’ and ‘Mars Actually’).

He also creates outdoor theatre with Wet Picnic and regularly gigs as a stand up comic.
Dominic Allen is an Artistic Director of Belt Up Theatre and is the creator of 'A Common Man', his critically acclaimed solo show about Thomas Paine. He trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and went on to win the prestigious Peter O'Toole Prize. He has worked as an actor with Sally Cookson, Tom Morris and Les Enfants Terribles, and as a puppeteer with Finn Caldwell. His writing has been performed in the UK, USA and Australia.
Ina Berggren freelances as stage and production manager as well as theatre technician. She has been based in London since 2008, she is originally from Sweden where she started her career before moving to the UK for family reasons. Ina went to Drama College in Sweden with focus on Stage and Lighting but will at this point have reached the level where she is today, by working in the industry for the last 10 years. She is at the moment, as well working on Providence working as technical and stage manager for Theatre Temoin, company stage manager for Superbolt Theatre and with Kane Power Theatre as stage manager.
