In "Nona," while hitchhiking on a snowy winter's night in Maine, a college dropout meets and falls in love with a girl he'd do absolutely anything for. In "Quitters, Inc.," Morrison is going to quit smoking whether he wants to or not… but is the cure worse than the disease? And in "In the Deathroom," Fletcher, an ex-reporter from the New York Times, is being held in an interrogation room in a foreign land, with only his wits to protect him.

These are the tales that make up this year's THE BLOOD BROTHERS PRESENT… series, Nosedive Productions' annual October horror show. James Comtois (COLORFUL WORLD, THE ADVENTURES OF NERVOUS-BOY), Qui Nguyen (FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD) and Mac Rogers (UNIVERSAL ROBOTS, HAIL SATAN), three of New York indie theatre scene's hottest playwrights write three new stage plays based on stories by the Master of Horror, Stephen King.

In addition to these one-acts, the evening will also present vignettes based on King's "Survivor Type," "Paranoid: A Chant" and "The Last Waltz." The evening will be directed by Pete Boisvert and Patrick Shearer.

THE BLOOD BROTHERS PRESENT...THE MASTER OF HORROR features graphic violence and is recommended for adults only.
