This production reflects on women in the horror and film industry, while exploring design-driven theatre. Our story follows the Usher, a guide for an outdated ghost tour. The Usher guides audiences through environments concerning horror and women in cinema. The tour was created by Mr. Sogyny, an unseen man, who represents sexism. In our story, this is the first tour the Usher has given without Mr. Sogyny watching them. Eventually, they feel free to ignore the sexist dialogue of the tour, triggering the appearance of ghosts inspired by female horror characters. Through design-driven theatre, the Usher uncovers new perspectives on these characters, gaining courage to critique and reflect.
