Shoggoths on the Veldt

by Cameron McNary

 

When famed Victorian explorer Melford Pumbleshire is torn to pieces by something horrible and unseen while on safari in deepest, darkest Africa, his redoubtable fiancé Euphonia Riggstone must lead an expedition to put his unquiet spirit to rest. This globetrotting adventure comedy has romance, betrayal, an amnesiac ghost, perfidious cultists, and a Lovecraftian tentacle monster. Part of the Main Stage Series.

Tasi Alabastro as Famed Explorer Welton Mountcrag
Betsy the Shoggoth as Herself
Lisa Burton as Lady Phillipa Bickleford-Smith-Jones
Ronald Feichtmeier as Lord Melford Pumbleshire
