vulcanello productions presents

the thing on the doorstep: asenath's tale


Viola has a problem. Her best friend Asenath doesn’t seem to be quite right. In fact, she may be just a little bit dead…


Asenath's Tale expands on HP Lovecraft's necromantic masterpiece "The Thing on the Doorstep" to tell the story of Edward Denby's bride, Asenath Waite. Is she a malevolent presence... or a victim? As directed by Ralph Bogard, this hair-raising story will make for a night that leaves you filled with fear for your soul.



About the company

Vulcanello Productions took its first foray into Lovecraft with a genderswitched version of Mountains of Madness (2016 London Horror Festival). With The Thing on the Doorstep, playwright T.L. Wiswell continues this exploration of his works, but by expanding the mythos to round out a lesser character that still fits tightly in his world. We are pleased to present it a second time after a sell-out debut in February of this year. Vulcanello also curate and produce the now-annual London Lovecraft Festival, which moves to the Old Red Lion in 2019; for more info or to get involved visit
