A Memory Palace of Fear
November 2, 2016: Many, many thanks to all who came out October 29 and 30 to our two sold-out workshop performances. We were especially gratified to see so many West Humboldt neighbors in the house — and we apologize again if Walt scared your child!
We learned a lot, and had a blast doing it — and, never fear, we will be back next year. In the meantime, we welcome your feedback. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your thoughts: What worked, what didn’t, what was the deal with that fortune teller?
Thanks also to Paul Dailing and Alexandria Johnson for their generous coverage:
And thanks to Kristin Basta and Eiren Caffall for the gorgeous photos below.

A Memory Palace of Fear is a haunted house about housing — an immersive theater installation exploring the ways the spaces we call home can turn from refuge to menace, and back again. Original workshop production October 29 & 30, 2016, at Silent Funny, 4106 W. Chicago.
Created by: Martha Bayne, Lily Emerson, Billie Howard, Sara Heymann, Andrea Jablonski, Charlie Malave
With: Emmy Bean, Jean Carlos Claudio, Sharon Lanza, and Kat McJimsey
