Frankenstein - We Happy Few

FRANKENSTEIN

adapted from Mary Shelley's novel

"Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world."

In a room of filthy creation, a young man stands alone at the turning point of human history: a remedy to the steady cold hand of Death. On the table lies his greatest promise, the product of all his hard work, the summation of his hopes and dreams. As Victor Frankenstein brings his impossible creation to life, he also opens a door to death, destruction, and regret.

In the newest installment of We Happy Few’s Classics-in-Action series, we’ll explore Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in an hour-long performance using her original text, live action, puppets, and a custom cocktail to bring to life the Frankenstein that you’ve always wanted to know.

Dracula - We Happy Few

DRACULA

Listen to them - the children of the night. What music they make. You dwellers in the city cannot enter into the feelings of the hunter.

Experience this nightmarish achievement of storytelling as it drags you through the memorandum, newspaper clippings, and diary pages of a frantic vampire hunt. With faithful adherence to Stoker’s text, immersive staging, and chilling, terrifying (and of course
silly) performances, we bring the audience into the heart of Dracula’s conflict: the intersection of predator and prey.


Dracula is the second installment in our Classics-in-Action Series, and like its predecessor, A Midnight Dreary, the story of Dracula will be specifically tailored to each performance space, and is best enjoyed with our custom drink pairing in hand. Bring Your Own Garlic.

Listen to them - the children of the night. What music they make. You dwellers in the city cannot enter into the feelings of the hunter.

Experience this nightmarish achievement of storytelling as it drags you through the memorandum, newspaper clippings, and diary pages of a frantic vampire hunt. With faithful adherence to Stoker’s text, immersive staging, and chilling, terrifying (and of course
silly) performances, we bring the audience into the heart of Dracula’s conflict: the intersection of predator and prey.


Dracula is the second installment in our Classics-in-Action Series, and like its predecessor, A Midnight Dreary, the story of Dracula will be specifically tailored to each performance space, and is best enjoyed with our custom drink pairing in hand. Bring Your Own Garlic.

A Night of Murder, Madness and Macabre Theatrics.

Featuring three Edgar Allen Poe stories, each with a drink pairing.

Follow us down the rabbit hole of Poe's mind as we wind our way through his stories, his madness, and his haunts - all with a drink in hand. This production is a site-specific piece, originally designed for Spectre Arts and uniquely tailored for each space it's performed in. We invite you to join Poe (all three of him!) for a first-hand look into the mind of the tortured genius.

Using only Poe’s words, We have whipped up a tale complete with music, poetry, and terrifying tales of death and destruction.

Frankenstein Matinee - We Happy Few

FRANKENSTEIN

adapted from mary shelley's novel

"Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world."

In a room of filthy creation, a young man stands alone at the turning point of human history: a remedy to the steady cold hand of Death. On the table lies his greatest promise, the product of all his hard work, the summation of his hopes and dreams. As Victor Frankenstein brings his impossible creation to life, he also opens a door to death, destruction, and regret.

In the newest installment of We Happy Few’s Classics-in-Action series, we’ll explore Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in an hour-long performance using her original text, live action, puppets, and a custom cocktail to bring to life the Frankenstein that you’ve always wanted to know.
