Lovecraft Stories for Halloween Season. Cosmic Horror Adaptations to Replace Halls of Darkness in Covid Conscious Halloween Program
This Halloween season Hammond Castle Museum will offer a room to room-to-room theater performance of The Horror of Abbadia Mare, an adaptation of five H.P. Lovecraft stories set within the Castle and adapted around one of America’s most prolific inventors of his time, John Hays Hammond Jr. The five adaptations include Lovecraft’s: Dunwich Horror, Dreams in the Witch House, The Hound, The Color Out of Space, and From Beyond. Set in the fall of 1929, Hammond falls prey to his genealogy which was cursed nearly four centuries ago. As guests move through the inner rooms of the Castle they come upon various members of the Hammond household and are drawn into a story of frantic and tragic happenings within the Castle’s walls.
Performances begin at 6 pm and run every 15 minutes through 9 pm on Friday, October 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. Tickets are $25 each. Advance ticket purchase is required, and tickets may be purchased at: hammondcastle.org/TheHorror. Hammond Castle Museum, 80 Hesperus Avenue, Gloucester

“a absolute gem!” Location is prime-right on the water and walking distance to Main street shops. The Front Desk staff greeted us with welcoming smiles. They offered info on local fun spots and took time to chat on a map so we didn’t get too lost. hotel restaurant was outstanding. We will certainly be back!
DELICIOUSNESS!!! I absolutely love this place. From service to the music, they run a tight ‘ship’. Their lobster is on point.
