The Wicked Lit Halloween Theatre Festival has released a batch of preview photos from their upcoming 2015 production, which launches on October 2 at the Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery in Altadena. The images are from The Grove and The System. The Grove (adapted from “In A Grove” by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, which inspired Akira Kurosawa’s famous film) is one of three short plays that will be in nightly rotation (along with The Fall of the House of Usher and The Ebony Frame). The System (based on the blackly comic short story “The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether” by Edgar Allan Poe) is the “frame” story that wraps around the other tales, wrapping the anthology experience up into a unified whole.
