Within Grand-Guignol revivals there is a heterodoxy of performance beliefs. Some believe less is more. Others believe that a splash zone is an integral part to a night of performance. Below You'll find a smattering of possibilities as to what the Grand-Guignol can look like restaged and in the modern age.
Closed in 2017, Thrillpeddlers produced performances in the San Francisco area for over 20 years with a focus on authentic Grand-Guignol horror plays. They also produced musicals in the style of the Theatre of the Ridiculous and more generally horror inspired "spookshows" to boot. Despite being closed, many of their previous performers, directors, etc. are open to respectful communication and would love to talk with prospective students interested in the Grand-Guignol.
Located in Washington DC and open for nearly 20 years, this theatre group produces a variety of horror and suspense based plays. Most notably, they've premiered and revived countless english translations from the Grand-Guignol. They also do educational outreach for the Grand-Guignol.

Cataloged in Richard J. Hand and Michael Wilson's Performing Grand-Guignol these nights of performance brought numerous Guignol plays into English for the first time.

In this pursuit, a 1999 showing featured performances in a crypt! The link is to an interview with Richard Hand, where these performances are mentioned. But, I'd highly recommend the book for a more detailed view and understanding.
As a part of the prestigious theatre and dance department's LAB series- several translated works from Richard J. Hand have been performed this quarter at the Shank Theatre on UCSD's campus. These works have been done for the purpose of experiential learning, taking cues from the Grand-Guignol laboratory in rehearsal.
