Deathscribe X

Monday, December 4, 2017 @ 8pm
Lincoln Hall
2424 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL 60614

In our continued quest to acquire original, imaginative horror stories, we solicited and received over 100 new works from theatre and horror aficionados around the world. These final five radio plays have emerged, perhaps slightly bloodstained, as finalists of the grueling selection process. Join us to see who will be this year’s victor and winner of the coveted Bloody Axe Award!

These five finalists will send thrills up your spine as they are brought to life by Chicago’s finest actors and directors, accompanied by a live band and a team of sound effects artists complete with live Foley onstage. The winner of the Bloody Axe will be chosen by a panel of horror and theatre experts.


  • THE DEATHSCRIBE ORCHESTRA featuring Joe Griffin, Laura McKenzie, Eric Engleson, Hilary Holbrook, Tim Griffin, and Paul Foster*
  • LIVE FOLEY designed by Ele Matelan*, performed by Moira Begale*, Ele Matelan, and Shandee Vaughan*
  • MASTER OF CEREMONIES Josh Zagoren*, Artistic Director of WildClaw Theatre

Enter to win a fun prize pack from JIGSAW! Go to to enter – winners will be awarded via mail by all entries received by noon on Friday, October 27.

Thirteen years ago on Halloween weekend – SAW and the character of JIGSAW introduced the world to a new face of horror. For seven straight years “If it’s Halloween it must be SAW” was a holiday tradition. This October 27, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures proudly present JIGSAW! After a series of murders bearing all the markings of the Jigsaw killer, law enforcement find themselves chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade and embroiled in a new game that’s only just begun. Is John Kramer back from the dead to remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a killer with designs of their own?

Hashtag: #Jigsaw

JIGSAW opens nationwide on October 27, 2017.
