Wicked Lit Staged Readings

December 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10 – $20
Join us for staged readings of three chilling classic stories: "From Beyond" (WL16) adapted by Trey Nichols from the story by H.P. Lovecraft directed by Shaina Rosenthal "The Unholy Sisters" (First Stab Festival II) by Susannah Myrvold inspired by “The Malleus Maleficarum” by Heinrich Kramer and Jacob Sprenger directed by Paul Millet "The Grove of Rashomon" (WL15) adapted by Jonathan Josephson from the short story “In A Grove” by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa directed by Darrell Kunitomi Stories of darkness and horror are as old humanity, and just as universal. Journey with us through three short plays inspired by the darker side of storytelling – meet a scientist who has broken through a new plane of existence in a Lovecraftian thriller; take a journey alongside a fanatical Medieval inquisitor on his hapless search for witches; and travel to 13th Century Japan to relive a haunting, harrowing tale of violence from a multitude of perspectives. Talkback with the playwrights and directors to follow.
