A haunted house about housing and other fears.
Created by Martha Bayne and Andrea Jablonski.
What haunts your house? Eviction? Lead? Mice? Ghosts? A Memory Palace of Fear is a haunted house about housing and other real-world fears—an immersive theater installation exploring the ways the spaces we call home can turn from refuge to menace, and back again, employing performance, text, sound, and visual art elements to seek common ground between the haunted houses of ghost stories and Halloween entertainments and the troubles that haunt Chicago.
Tours start every 30 minutes, with a running time of approximately half an hour; plan on a full hour for your visit to enjoy supplemental programming. First two tours of each date are designed for younger audiences; later shows not recommended for children under 10.
Produced by Theater Oobleck. Performers and contributing artists include Emmy Bean, Jean Carlos Claudio, Lily Emerson, Heather Gabel, Sara Heymann, Billie Howard, Sharon Lanza, Charlie Malave, Kat McJimsey, and Gabriel X. Michael, with more to come.
