Three strangers arrive on an isolated farm, only to find that their host is nowhere to be found. As night approaches, dread builds as friends of the missing family divulge what has happened since a fateful day when a shooting star touched the land. And when the missing farmer turns up without his family, his madness may be the fate of all who entered that place and saw the color out of space...

Adapted and directed by company co-founder Dan Wolff, The Color Out of Space marks the first adaptation for the stage of the HP Lovecraft work of the same name. 

Widely regarded as one of HP Lovecraft's finest works, even by Lovecraft, himself, The Color Out of Space represented Lovecraft's first venture into blurring the lines between science fiction and horror. 

Join us for this, Mercurial Theatre's maiden performance, as we descend into the dim world of Lovecraft's creation, headlong into the unknowable gray depths of human fear.
