ALTADENA — Performances of “Wicked Lit 2015,” the annual immersive theater event from Unbound Productions, continue through Nov. 14 at Moun­tain View Mausoleum and Cemetery in Altadena.

The live event includes the world premiere adaptation of “The Grove of Rashomon,” adapted by Josephson from the short story “In a Grove” by Japanese author Ryunosuke Akutagawa and directed by Darin Anthony.

“The Grove of Rashomon” fea­tures local actors Sachiyo K, Hisato Masuyama, Alpha Takahashi and Kazumi Zatkin.

“Wicked Lit” audiences will experience three short plays as they are led through the grounds of the mausoleum and cemetery by sto­ry guides. As it is a walking show, patrons must be able to comfortably walk a minimum of 2,000 steps and climb stairs in order to experience this production. The production, which contains mature themes, theat­rical violence, and sexual situations, is recommended for audiences ages 16 and over. The running time is ap­proximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including two intervals.

Last year’s “Wicked Lit” played to 100 percent capacity over six weeks and drew over 3,000 patrons to Altadena. The immersive event was named “Best Halloween Attraction” for the second year in a row by Hol­lywood Gothique.

The Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery is located at 2300 N. Marengo Ave. in Altadena. Free parking. For information, visit www.unboundproductions.org.
