“Demons are forever”





BeLT Productions


A hotel becomes a supernatural 'playground' as Japanese demons wreak havoc on its guests.

Following a sell out run at the Camden Fringe 2013, BeLT Productions present, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, the European premiere of acclaimed US playwright Steve Yockey's macabre and darkly humorous mix of Japanese folk horror and American Gothic.

On falling down a sink-hole on the building site of his new hotel, an architect finds himself in a subterranean cavern confronted by a mysterious and threatening woman. A Faustian pact is forged. In exchange for the thing he most desires, the hotel becomes her supernatural 'playground'. During the ensuing years a horde of ancient Japanese demons wreak havoc upon unsuspecting guests in a series of macabre, darkly comic and strangely linked episodes, including an elevator ride to hell, a very satisfying blind date, and the misuse of cleaning products and crockery.

Yockey has created a world where everyday situations take on supernatural qualities. 23 characters feature in seven short episodes where the distance between the real and the surreal collapses. An exhilarating, horrific, visceral journey warning us that sometimes bad things happen for a reason.

Very dark, Very funny, Very scary and Very hard to forget.
