About this show

After a successful run at Rosehill Cemetery this spring, Neil Tobin, Necromancer: Near Death Experience returns to the historic Chicago site with more thought-provoking theater just in time for the Halloween season. Chicago-area writer-producer-performer Neil Tobin performs nine interactive, magical, site-specific solo shows about mortality at the rarely open-to-the-public May Chapel on the grounds of Rosehill Cemetery.

Winner of IndyFringe Theatre Festival's Audience Choice Award, this show is no horror show or cheap, spooky thrill. Tobin maintains a sophisticated tone, deftly fusing mortality and mystery into a life-affirming experience that's smart, darkly humorous, never scary, and completely entertaining. According to Tobin, "this show is ultimately about the good that comes from improving our relationship with mortality." So, though it does contain magical performance elements, this is no children's show. This is dead serious fun.
