Beatrix Players at St Pancras Old Church, London - live review
Venue: St Pancras Old Church, London
Prog's Limelight Award winners wow the audience
As the black-clad Beatrix Players, backed by the SOUND choir, reach the climax of their impressive set, the combination of music and voices fills the church with an atmosphere it would be remiss to describe as anything other than Gothic.
Their tales of Ophelias and ladies of the lake more generally suggest a Pre-Raphaelite bearing, but towards the evening’s culmination, powerful Hammer Horror vibes take over, and as audience members we wonder which of us will be summoned forth as a human sacrifice on the conveniently situated altar.
