FALL BRANCH, Tenn. – Are you ready to enter the Mortality Room and come face to face with fear? This Halloween season debuts yet another new Mortality Room production at LampLight Theatre. The Fall brings great harvest festivals to many small towns. But to Fall Branch, it brings terror to the characters in “Harvest of Souls.” This production exposes some light on the history of “All Hallows Eve” steeped in pagan customs. Tattie Bogal (An evil scarecrow) will introduce you to Samhain (Demon of the Dead), a host of Demon Scarecrows, and of course, Muck Olla (The Boogey Man – Reaper of Souls). Beware of other creatures that go “bump in the night.”
Scarecrows are somewhat whimsical and are known for chasing crows away. They are traditionally symbols of protection. This is not the case for our menacing, ghoulish, creatures in this production. These demonic ragamuffins love to intimidate audience members and those who enter the Mortality Room.
“Harvest of Souls” is not a show for the weak at heart. What you see isn’t necessarily reality. When you step into the Halloween expose, Tattie Bogal will entice you to enter her twisted world. If you aren’t careful, Muck Olla will deceive you into believing his lies as he unleashes his plethora of demonic spirits. When this hellish troupe comes to town, several teenagers are hoodwinked by the power of The Boogey Man who is out to reap their souls. Some fall prey to his traps. Little do they know the eternal impact that this encounter will have on their mortal lives. Their destiny in the “after-life” hangs in the balance as choices are made under the influence of principalities and dark forces.
Mortality Room’s “Harvest of Souls” is NOT for everyone. Due to its true-to-life situations and scary images, this show is rated PG-13.
