Wicked Lit 2011

(Note: This is not a GHOULA event. It is a ghost-themed event happening in Los Angeles that we feel may be of interest to our members.)

This year's show will be at Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery, and features theatrical adaptations of classic horror literature being performed as a walking production throughout the grounds of the cemetery.

The scope of Wicked Lit is to create and produce new stage plays based on classic horror literature. Wicked Lit launched its inaugural production in 2009 at the haunted Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills and has also produced a sold-out show at the Biltmore Hotel in conjunction with the Theatre Communications Group National Conference in 2011.

This year they will return to Altadena for this Halloween season after a sold-out run at Mountain View in 2010. In addition to the creating fully realized productions, Wicked Lit has presented over 70 staged readings of new plays at theatres, libraries, schools, and festivals all over Southern California. These readings have taken place in communities throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties.
