“The inventive Rorschach Theatre has a flair for cult fantasy, but the troupe has upped its game big-time for the sprawling Neverwhere.” — Washington Post

A wounded girl appears on the London sidewalk in front of Richard Mayhew. Quickly he’s plunged into an underworld where heroes and monsters are real and where death waits in the dark of Night’s Bridge. Neil Gaiman’s heralded cult-classic novel is brought to vivid life in this visceral stage adaptation.
“Lovers of fantasy and graphic novels will eat up the whole demonic enchilada, especially the deliciously gruesome touches—the squeaky patter of the rats, the audioscape of dripping water and echoing groans, the crumbling London Underground signs and crumbling columns that hint at the world above ground, the 360-degree staging that envelopes you in every aspect of the experience.” — DC Theatre Scene
