Welcome to THE MAGNETIC THEATRE
Asheville’s home to original works since 2009

NOW PLAYING…

World Premiere/October 12 – 28

GRAVE LULLABY

Written and Directed by Jamieson Ridenhour

When Mark and Kristen James move into an old house in a new town, it feels like the perfect opportunity to escape their recent tragedy and start afresh. But the new neighbors have their own secrets, and the neighborhood may be as haunted as the James’ own past.  A classic ghost story in the tradition of M.R. James and Peter Straub, with a twist you will never see coming.  Grave Lullaby was a National Finalist for the 2013 Kennedy Center ACTF David Cohen Play-writing Award.

After last year’s critically acclaimed TERRY TEMPEST: The Final Interview, Asheville writer/director Jameson Ridenhour returns to the Magnetic. Jamie has been teaching writing and literature for 18 years. In addition to publishing scholarly articles on Dickens, LeFanu, and contemporary vampire film, Ridenhour edited the Valancourt edition of Sheridan LeFanu’s Carmilla (2009) and wrote a book-length study of urban Gothic fiction, In Darkest London (Scarecrow, 2014). He is also creator/writer/producer of the popular (and creepy) horror/suspense podcast Palimpsest, which is currently in its second season, and is available on every podcast platform.
