Midnight. Late December, 1937. Reed, a discredited archaeologist and aesthete, is running for his life. Having stolen an ancient amulet from the fetid grave of a neglected Holland churchyard, he locks himself in the library of his London townhouse in order to evade the pursuit of some "malign being". In shocking detail, he recounts a gruesome testimony of unnatural occurrences surrounding the totem's theft... and the appalling consequences for all who come to possess it.

A solo one-act play adapted from the classic, short horror story by H.P. Lovecraft.
