**THE THEATRE DU GRAND GUIGNOL
Théâtre du Grand Guignol (pronounced ‘Grahn Geen-yol’) was once known as “the greatest horror show on earth.” Théâtre du Grand Guignol in Paris (1897-1962) achieved a legendary reputation as the “Theatre of Laughter and Terror”. The plays of the Grand Guignol inevitably featured eye-gouging, throat-slashing, acid-throwing, or some other equally grisly climax. Enter the underworld of Grand Guignol: horrific, unsettlingly sophisticated and morally dubious.
