LICENSE PLAYS – WICKED LIT
Thank you for your interest in licensing Wicked Lit, a unique collection of Halloween plays that can be produced as individual short plays or expansive festivals; as site-specific events, immersive productions or in traditional theatres spaces! All of our horror plays are adaptations of classic literature, folktales, legends or campfire tales ranging from Edgar Allan Poe favorites to terrifying tales from all corners of the Earth.
Wicked Lit is a proven crowd-pleaser. Our immersive Los Angeles production has sold out every ticket for every performance from 2013-2017. Our scripts balance classic horror tropes and situations with artful, relevant, often funny theatrical twists.
Bring the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Washington Irving and many others to your school, production company, theatre, or site-specific venue!
