This Lurking Thing is a Halloween-themed triptych of tales in which living are far more feared than the dead.  The theatrical tales  include the true and grisly history of Dracula, the macabre bedtime story of an infirm woman, and the profile of a man who presides as a living ghost.  Each story reveals the scary side of presenting our true selves.

This production was originally work-shopped in the winter of 2010 at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater as part of their playwriting LAB series.

Mr. Fielding’s credits include the Broadway production Pygmalion, with Jefferson Mays at Roundabout Theatre Company, and Off-Broadway productions at 59E 59, Connelly Theater, Greenwich Street Theater and Cherry Lane Theatre.  In 2008 he performed for the grand re-opening of the Ford’s Theatre in DC in The Heavens are Hung in Black commemorating the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.  As a writer Mr. Fielding has worked with the Misa Table to collaboratively create a full length piece titled 1905 which with the support of a visioning grant received a full production in Amherst,MA at UMASS.  Jonathan was a featured performer in The Artful Conspirators’ Hadar New Plays Project during which he portrayed several memorable characters, including Officer Blinky, a sock puppet.
