Death in Yosemite

Written by Fearless Company Member Tim Wick

Featuring Fearless Company Members Jason Kruger, Dawn Krosnowski, and Windy Bowlsby.

Every year, a few dozen people die while visiting Yosemite National Park. This is a story about some of them. It’s a lot like Our Town crossed with a Serial Killer movie.

Katie Versus the Devils

Featuring Fearless Company Member Tim Wick

Untold stories of Katharina Von Bora, the wife of Martin Luther. Thrill as she and a friend battle assassins, magicians, and the Devil himself! The 16th century like you’ve never seen it before.

A young boy slaughters a pair of copulating snakes, and is cursed to spend his life as a double-gendered voyeur — a prophet, both male and female, whose visions of the future are ridiculed by their subjects.

The Summoning

Written by Fearless Company Member Megan Slawson

Directed by Fearless Company Member Eric Thompson

Featuring Fearless Company Members Michael Bloom, Angela Fox, and Lauren Haven

A stolen Ouija Board, a ritual ripped out of a grocery store tabloid, and three bickering childhood friends, what could possibly go wrong? Pretty much everything.

The Tragedy of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Fight Choreography by Fearless Company Member Jena Young

Featuring Fearless Comedy Members Nathan Gerber and Matthew Kessen

What if Obi-Wan Kenobi was actually the villain? Tragedy and comedy collide in an epic tale about how we lie to ourselves, to justify doing things we know are evil. Laugh. Cry. Bring balance to the Force.

The Well

Stage Managed by Fearless Company Member Andrea Ropella

Lost and separated from the rest of their raiding party, four souls take refuge for the night near the ruins of a crumbling well. Unfortunately, they appear to have found an even more dangerous foe.

Waiting for Gygax
