[Unbound Productions is a] uniquely amazing theater company… The
cast and crew of Wicked Lit do a phenomenal job at immersing their
guests into the stories and making them feel a part of it all.

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.

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?

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?

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.
