Show Details

“April is simply astounding. The wellness-positivity-black comedy is just the tip of an obsidian stiletto the size of an iceberg.“ (Kieron Gillen - ‘Phonogram’, ‘The Wicked + The Divine’)

Written and performed by Carrie Marx, APRIL is the new genre-disrupting show from Hermetic Arts, the creators of BADD (Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons) and UNBURIED.

“Fight to get a ticket!“ (Nicholas Vince - ‘Hellraiser’, ‘Nightbreed’)

HERMETIC ARTS was established in 2016 by Chris Lincé and Carrie Marx. Their first show, BADD (Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons), had successful runs at the London VAULT Festival, Brighton Fringe, and London Horror Festival in 2017. Written and performed by Carrie Marx, BADD was a theatrical exploration into the 1980s US Satanic Panic.
Their second show, UNBURIED, ran at VAULT Festival in March 2018, then at Brighton Horror Fest and the Soho Theatre.
APRIL, premiered at the London Horror Festival, October 2018.
They love the Dark Arts, Horror, Cryptozoology, Mischief, Science Fiction, and Odd Stuff.

Venue Details

The Vaults,
Leake Street,

Eight unbelievable venues, three stylish bars and a top-notch restaurant, all hidden beneath Waterloo. From 6pm until the early hours, there’s nowhere else you need to be. Welcome to VAULT 2016

“The business model for the creative industries is broken. For every performer at Edinburgh working for nothing, read musician on Spotify or writer on the net. Providers of content make peanuts, while the controllers of the infrastructure… walk away with extraordinary profits. … How can we transfer some of the wealth grabbed by, say, hotels in Edinburgh and hand it to the people who generated it?”
Patrick Collinson, The Guardian, 29 / 8 / 15

We want VAULT Festival to be the people’s festival. For six weeks, join this carnival of experience, filled with entertainment and around every corner an unexpected adventure. From hard-hitting drama to outrageous comedy, from dance to late-night parties, VAULT takes in the bravest and best of the next generation of creators.

“It’s risky to bring a show [to Edinburgh Festival] that you know needs a lot of development in the faint hope that someone will spot a gold nugget and offer to help nurture it. In any case, if you are only here with something in the hope of catching someone’s eye, you are selling audiences short. They should be the people you really make the show for, not some producer who may or may not pitch up.”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, 20 / 8 / 15

We put up the flag here at the edge of theatreland, and gather acts & artists, bands & companies from all over to come and make something unforgettable. It’s their festival, and we’re inviting you to celebrate it with us.

We’re doing our best to reinvent the non-funded creative sector and make it sustainable for both the artist and the festival. What we give is space: to innovate, take risks and cooperate with each other. We don’t charge rent. We do take 30% of show box office, which goes some way – but not all the way towards covering our costs. In this way, Artists and Festival live or die together.
Come and see what the people have made: there’s a conversation every single night about where we go from here. There’s three great bars, fantastic food and enough entertainment to make the outside world irrelevant as long as our doors are open.


Halfway down Leake Street (the Graffiti Tunnel). Please do not go to the Launcelot Street entrance. The venue can be hard to find – please leave more time than you usually would.
