What haunts your house? Eviction? Foreclosure? Mice? Ghosts?
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.
Created by: Martha Bayne, Billie Howard, Sara Heymann, Andrea Jablonski, Charlie Malawe, and Lily Emerson Malawe
With: Emmy Bean, Jean Carlos Claudio, Sharon Lanza, and Kat McJimsey
Produced by Theater Oobleck, with support from the Social Justice News Nexus program at Medill School of Journalism.
Tours start every 15 minutes, with a running time of approximately half an hour. Timed advance tickets are strongly recommended. A limited number of walkup tickets will also be available, first come, first served.
