The scheduled for this year’s Wicked Lit has been posted and I’m in talks with a friend who is trying to get a group together to attend.
The scope of Wicked Lit is to create and produce new stage plays based on classic horror literature. Over 15 Wicked Lit plays have been written since 2007 including adaptations of works by Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Mark Twain, M. R. James, Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, Washington Irving and many others.
Ok, so my understanding of Wicket Lit is this. It is an annual October event produced by Unbound Productions. The reason I’m so psyched about this is because some years back, I went to a play about the Dalai Lama that took place outdoors (I think it was at the Arroyo). The audience basically followed the actors as they literally moved from scene to scene, so that we ended up journeying through the story with them along paths through the park. It was so cool and really added another level to the performance that really drew us in.
That was apparently also an Unbound Production and that is apparently how they roll. They take you with them so that you can feel like you’re a party of the story.
Oh, man, that means Wicket Lit is going to be wicked cool. It takes place this year at the Mountain View Cemetery Mausoleum in Pasadena. eeks!
Back for 2012, Wicked Lit features dynamic adaptations of classic horror literature presented at Mountain View Mausoleum & Cemetery. Walk the hollowed burial grounds of Mountain View as three scary stories unfold all around you.
