Have you seen the Yellow Sign?

Based on the story by Robert W. Chambers, 'The King in Yellow' is a black comedy/horror looking at the price some would be willing to pay to live their dreams, who they would leave behind and what they would choose to ignore in a mad charge to the top.  
It's 1910 and Arthur will go to any lengths, risk anything and anyone to fulfill his dream of performing on London's West End. When he's offered the lead in a mysterious new play called 'The King in Yellow', he grabs the opportunity with both hands. But The Unspeakable One has plans within plans and Arthur slowly starts to lose his grip on reality as his loving but exasperated sister desperately tries to pull him back before he's lost forever. Will she succeed? Only The King knows for sure.
