For over 25 years, Tim Uren has been performing, writing, and directing theater at festivals and small venues in the Twin Cities. Along the way, has worked with companies such as Theater Pro Rata, the Brave New Workshop, and Theater in the Round. He co-produced a film adaptation of The Curse of Yig that author W. H. Pugmire called “…one of the finest adaptations of a Lovecraft weird tale to cinema that I have ever seen…brilliant and effective in every way.” Uren has also written and designed for board games and card games, notably for several Arkham Horror expansions, as well as Eldritch Horror and its subsequent expansions. This collective experience is what shaped the creation of Ghoulish Delights.
About the Screaming Skull
Ghoulish Delights is proud to present Eric Webster in this adaptation of F. Marion Crawford's classic ghost story. Originally written in 1908, “The Screaming Skull” tells the story of a retired sailor who spends a stormy night descending into drink and madness, haunted by the cries of a woman he may have inadvertently helped murder. This production features live sound effects to immerse the audience in a sea-side storm and bring the wrath of a vengeful spirit to life.

*What does “A Sophisticated Anthology of the Unknown” mean?
Back when Alan Moore was writingThe Saga of the Swamp Thing comic books, the phrase “Sophisticated Suspense” appeared on the cover. It was a remarkably succinct and accurate description of the stories within. Characters were complex and compelling. Plots challenged readers to delve further into their darkest fears. Those stories stand to this day as a great model of the kind of shows that Ghoulish Delights aims to produce. That's the why the company uses the word “sophisticated” to describe its work.
The horror anthology appears in every conceivable medium: magazines (Weird Tales), radio (Suspense), comic books (Tales from the Crypt) television (The Twilight Zone), and movies (Creepshow). There is a tradition in presenting tales of terror in a format that includes several unique stories and distinct points of view, each of which can stand on its own but collectively come together to create a larger sense of the world’s mysteries. We value diversity both in the content of stories and in the voices that tell them.
Horror is an important genre. We constantly push forward from the safety of what is known into shadowy worlds of uncertainty, a journey that is both exciting and terrifying. Enjoying stories about such journeys is a way to practice being courageous. In sharing our fears, we can overcome them. In fact, we can be delighted by them.
