I have been thinking a lot about horror as a genre lately. It's proving to be a very difficult medium for theatre because with theatre the audience sees all of what's there. Horror works in film often because the viewer does not see what the character sees - we hear but don't see. The same would apply with radio I think. However, I think theatre needs to be a different kind of horror - more breach of trust horror than scary thing horror. Anybody got any good experiences of writing horror for the stage? Or even bad experiences? Any thoughts on what types of horror things work in theatre?
