Here is a sampling of some our recent articles, a comprehensive list can be found on our “From the Press” page. “The theater company turns horror classics into standing-room-only performances at an Altadena cemetery.” – Arroyo Monthly Fall Arts Preview – Cover Story – Arroyo Monthly Fall Arts Preview – Cover Photo October 1, 2014
“…while the writers who inspire the Unbound troupe are an eclectic bunch, the common ground they provide is a smart and scary experience. There is nothing quite like wandering through the dark and echoed chambers of the mausoleum after dark to watch a tale of madness unfold..” – Pasadena Weekly Arts Feature, October 2, 2014 “Wicked Lit highlights women in its horror theater” – Los Angeles Daily News, September 29, 2014

Wicked Lit at ScareLA
Thank you to the hundreds of fans who came to see Wicked Lit at ScareLA last weekend! We had a blast meeting you all at our booth, participating in the first ever “Theatre of Halloween” panel, and exploring all of the awesome events that will be coming to LA this October.
Visit www.ScareLA.com for more info about events and spooky happenings later in the year!
We were thrilled to participate in this fabulous panel on Sunday night:
5pm: Stage Frights: Horror and Halloween Theater – Wicked Lit at ScareLA
From mausoleums to old abandoned houses, tales of Lovecraftian beasts to immersive, interactive vignettes of sheer terror, Los Angeles provides an unparalleled number of theatre companies devoted to horror. CreepyLA’s theatre editor Richard Becker leads a discussion on staged frights with Paul Millet and Jeff G. Rack from Wicked Lit, Jon Braver with Haunted Play, Zombie Joe from Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre, and Dan Spurgeon and Drew Blakeman with the Visceral Company, as each describe their own approach towards the theatrical experience, and upcoming productions perfect for the Halloween season.
Enjoy a sneak peek of our upcoming World Premiere Wicked Lit Installation!

Adapted from the story of the same name by Algernon Blackwood
Set in Victorian England, The Doll tells the story of Jane and Miss O’Brien, two dutiful caretakers within the home of the beleaguered Colonel Masters. When young Monica is given a package that arrives mysteriously at their doorstep, a force enters the house that turns their quiet little world upside down.
Plus a Wicked Lit staged reading to be announced!
At the Strub Mansion at the historic Mayfield Senior School
500 Bellefontaine St, Pasadena, CA 91105
Limited Run: July 11-26, 2014
The Doll runs 35 minutes, the staged reading will run 30-35 minutes
This event will be staged inside and around Strub Hall – an Italianate Beaux Arts home at the heart of the eight-acre Mayfield campus. The home was built between 1914-1919 for an oil magnate, and purchased for the Society of the Holy Child Jesus by Dr. Charles and Vera Strub in 1950.
Details for the staged reading of MYSTERY LIT have been announced! Adapted by Unbound’s Executive Director Jonathan Josephson, the play is a mash-up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed Sherlock Holmes stories A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, and The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.
