WildClaw Theatre

WildClaw Theatre is a Chicago-based theatrical group that β€œis dedicated to the mission of bringing Horror to the Chicago stage.”

WildClaw Theatre will bring the world of horror to the stage. We intend to attract a new kind of audience which does not usually go to the theatre, an audience craving strange journeys of dread, suspense, terror and wonder. In other words – Horror Theatre.

So all the thrills that our imagination, heart and intellect derive from the greatest horror fiction, art, film, games, and poetry – all these thrills, we will provoke alive, in the flesh, breathing and bleeding from the stage, and right in your face. Horror Theatre.

Each year they hold a contest titled Deathscribe for short works of horror audio drama. Winning entries are perform on stage in front of an audience, and are available to listen to online.

Every year we seek 10-minute radio scripts that are genuinely scary, imaginative, chilling, intelligent, suspenseful, horrific or downright grotesque. Writers may submit up to two radio plays to DEATHSCRIBE in any given year. Five scripts will be selected from all submissions. These five pieces will be performed on stage in front of a live audience. The writer of the winning piece, chosen by a celebrity panel of judges, will receive the coveted Bloody Axe Award, as well as a $100 cash prize.
