H.P. Lovecraft’s FROM BEYOND
Adapted by Trey Nichols
Directed by Jeff G. Rack
When a great discovery turns deadly, a highly regarded scientist is forced to choose between trusting his eyes or following his brain in order to survive. Included as a staged reading as a part of last summer’s installation of The Monkey’s Paw, this cerebral play is quintessentially Lovecraftian and intensely supernatural.
ANANSI AND THE DEMONS
Adapted by Jonathan Josephson
Directed by Jaime Robledo
Adapted from the canon of Anansi stories and Ashanti proverbs
Anansi is a trickster and a storyteller. He is also the de facto
leader of his village when traditional hierarchies go south with the
presence of the Ambassador. Now the Ashanti are starving and the
colonists are to blame… the demons have awoken, but can they be controlled?
Ellen Glasgow’s THE SHADOWY THIRD
Adapted by Paul Millet
Directed by Bruce Gray
A shy young girl. An insane mother. A goodhearted doctor with only the
best of intentions. One of these things is not as it seems. Or perhaps two.
Maybe all three?
The frame for Wicked Lit 2016:
CAMP MOUNTAIN VIEW
Written by Jonathan Josephson
Directed by Paul Millet
Welcome to Wicked Lit Talent Night at Camp Mountain View, an autumnal retreat for the living, dead and un-dead! Even though the camp is run by a vampire, a ghost, a werewolf and a zombie, your safety is our utmost concern. Enjoy storytelling around the campfire, ghostly arts and crafts, apparition archery and more. And no matter what the counselors say – you do not want to see their tents.
