LOS ANGELES, CA – Unbound Productions Co-Artistic Directors Jonathan Josephson, Paul
Millet, and Jeff G. Rack have announced that the 2012 incarnation of the popular horror story
adaptation series WICKED LIT will extend its previously announced run at Mountain View
Mausoleum and Cemetery in Altadena, California. The production will now run from October 12 to
November 10, 2012 – an addition of 7 performances for audiences to attend.

“We have presold nearly 1,000 tickets before the show has even opened,” said Josephson. “We
are excited and appreciative that our audiences have shown such strong support for our work and
we hope that adding these performances will give many more people a chance to receive a truly
unique immersive theatre experience.”

WICKED LIT 2012 features world premiere adaptations of M.R. James’ “Count Magnus”, F.
Marion Crawford’s “The Dead Smile” and Johann Ludwig Tieck ‘s “Wake Not the Dead.” All three
adaptations were written by Josephson, Rack, and Millet.

“These three plays have been tailor-made for Mountain View, so be prepared for some creepy,
freaky scares and surprises” said Rack.

WICKED LIT audiences will experience three short plays (as well as some special surprises) as
they are led through the grounds of the mausoleum and cemetery by a Storyguide. WICKED LIT
is a walking show – patrons must be able to comfortably walk a minimum of 2,000 paces and
climb stairs in order to experience this production. WICKED LIT is recommended for audiences
ages 13+.

The first annual WICKED LIT production was staged in 2009 on the grounds of Greystone
Mansion in Beverly Hills. Since that time, over 3,000 patrons have enjoyed full productions of
adaptations of authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens,
Robert E. Howard, Washington Irving and Robert Louis Stevenson.

The mission of Unbound Productions, the theatre company that produces WICKED LIT as well
as the newly launched History Lit, is to create new theatrical adaptations of classic literature and
produce them in non-traditional venues.

M.R. James’ Count Magnus

Adapted by Jonathan Josephson, Directed by Paul Millet
Mr. Wraxall is a British travel writer who has journeyed to the town of Vestergothland, Sweden in
search of something captivating to report back to his readership. The only thing interesting about
the village are the rumors of a long-dead nobleman who used to terrorize the countryside with
his violent sense of justice. Mr. Wraxall is determined to satisfy his readers and his own personal
curiosity about the haunting secrets that float about this strange little town – but will he lose (his)
face in the process?
