The Wicked Lit Halloween Theatre Festival is currently running Thursdays through Sundays (and some Wednesdays) at the Mountain view Mausoleum and Cemetery in Altadena. In in imaginative touch, this year's trilogy of terror (The Grove of Rashomon, The Ebony Frame, and The Fall of the House of Usher) are united by the frame story, The System, which posits that Wicked Lit is a method to cure inmates in an asylum by allowing them to act out their fantasies for an audience.
Hollywood Gothique recently sat down for a chat with Jeff G. Rack, one of the founders of Unbound Productions, the company behind the immersive Wicked Lit shows. Topics included adapting classic horror literature to suit a specific venue; keeping audiences from getting lost in the graveyard; bringing in new writers and directors to augment the original trio of Rack, Jonathan Josephson, and Paul Millet; diversifying the cast; appealing to women; and making the House of Usher fall.
