The Hallowe’en Sessions

“A group of mental patients gather for a therapy session to each recount the terrifying events that caused them to lose their minds. But is their mysterious therapist all she appears to be, and will her course of treatment prove to be kill or cure?” – Cigarette Burns publicity, 2012.

A portmanteau of six short plays, comprising THE SESSIONS by Kim Newman, THREE FINGERS, ONE THUMB by Stephen Volk, PROFESSOR BABU by Paul McAuley, THE NIGHT-BORN SISTERS by Maura McHugh, CASE STUDY: RICHARD GILL by Anne Billson and MARRY IN MAY, RUE THE DAY by Sean Hogan.

A follow-up, THE GHOST TRAIN DOESN’T STOP HERE ANY MORE [qv], was performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre, London in 2016.
