This essay offers an extensive consideration of how the works of various British dramatists, such as John Whiting, David Rudkin, Peter Barnes, Howard Barker, Philip Ridley, Jez Butterworth and Alistair McDowall, have opened up a space for imaginative speculation, and interrogation of conventional limits of representation and power. It draws on Fred Botting's distinctions between horror and terror, and James Reynolds's references to the cthonic.
