Eldritch Theatre presents…
 by Eric Woolfe with bits stolen from Snorri Sturluson

“It’s as if the Norse Legend of Ragnarok was the bastard love child of HP Lovecraft and Raymond Chandler.”
– Eric Woolfe, Artistic Director

A weird-noir, hardboiled, cosmic-horror mystery told with sultry actors, terrifying puppets and dark, arcane magic. A warlock running from his past. A woman running from the End of the World.

Eldritch Theatre is “Outrageously fun, horrific good times” – Life With More Cowbell

Rick Fischmascher is a rumpled private detective and warlock for hire, haunted by the death of his son, and entrenched in the arcane murder of a troubled opera singer. And he’s the chief suspect. Requiem for a Gumshoe is a weird-noir, hardboiled mystery, re-telling the Norse legend of Ragnarok in the pulpy style of Raymond Chandler infused with the cosmic horror of HP Lovecraft.
