Ever want to see a play in a cemetery? The cast of Wicked Lit is a Los Angeles-based performance group responsible for bringing some of the greatest works of creepy literature to a movable stage. From October 2- November 14, 2015, Wicked Lit will be performing at the Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery. The shows start at 7:30pm, but a preshow starts at 7:15pm.

Audiences will experience three short plays while they walk through the grounds of the mausoleum and cemetery by storyguides. Patrons need to be able to walk a minimum of 2,000 steps and climb stairs comfortably in order to truly enjoy the experience. Of course, many of these works have mature themes, theatrical violence and sexual situations, so Wicked Lit recommends the event only for those over the age of 16.
