More about Unbound Productions
Unbound Productions is a nonprofit theatre company whose mission is to re-imagine timeless stories for new audiences by creating immersive, theatrical adaptations of literature. The goal is to support, enrich, and involve the community through direct interaction with the general public, other nonprofit and civic organizations and education programs.
The many performances and theatre produced by this company is rated a zero on our intensity scale because the shows are traditionally promenade style, meaning that the audiences follow the actors as they move from location to location. So rather than being stuck in a seat, watching a performances, audiences are allowed to move with actors, following the action, as the narrative unfolds. This aids in immersing audiences in the world of the characters, enhancing the stories for all involved. There is no contact or scares to worry about.
The scope of Wicked Lit is to create dynamic new adaptations of classic horror literature. Since 2009, Wicked Lit has been immersing audiences in theatrical adaptations of classic horror literature through walking tours. In this 2 hour and 45 minute show, audiences will walk a minimum of 2,000 steps and climb stairs to experience 3 short plays while being led through an eerie mausoleum and cemetery by captivating Storyguides.
Wicked Lit is staged at unique venues that help set the mood for a series of spooky tales. Previous venues include Greystone Mansion and Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery in Altadena. These site-specific locations help make the stories more evocative and immersive for general audiences.
Mystery Lit & History Lit
During the non-Halloween seasons, Unbound Productions produces Mystery Lit & History Lit. While similar in staging to Wicked Lit, this show takes on classic Mystery Tales. Unbound Productions created these shows to bring a new life to great literature that reflects history in creative ways. These performances are also site-specific, aiding in immersing audiences in the action of the performance.
