Railroaded: A Shadow of the Run Story
Railroaded will be presented as a pop-up, or short-term installation, with an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) built into and preceding the experience, resulting in a multi-location trek through Northeast Ohio. Extremely limited tickets will be available to the main performance, with a reward for those that complete the ARG, though participation in the ARG is optional, and not required prior to attending Railroaded.
With an entirely original story, Railroaded fits between Chapter 1: WanderLust and Chapter 2: Calloused, which will tentatively premier in the summer of 2020. Railroaded is written and directed by Co-Founder Christine Woods, with Production Design by Ben Needham, and support from partners McGee and Kern. Carol Dolan and Gregg Hill of Secret Pond LLC return as Executive Producers.
About the story
Transient. Migrant. Homeless. Hobo. Hard times for those that hunger for Work, Food and Shelter during the Great Depression. Men and women traveled the country's railways seeking work, some looking for a fresh start, but many tearing their families apart in order to provide for them. An unfortunate time where the less fortunate can disappear without a trace whether by their own hand, or another, and not even time can tell you their story. Throw in a serial killer, and see how easy it is to become railroaded yourself.
Set yourself on a journey through this dark memory and see that glimpse of danger. Do be sure to wake before their reality becomes yours.
**As a POP-UP - RAILROADED is a short experience - 20 minutes in length, but will enhance your experience from Chapter 1, and next summer's Chapter 2. Some portions will be outside, approximately 5-7 minutes, we suggest wearing warm layers.
You do not need to have seen Chapter 1 to enjoy RAILROADED. 14 and up can attend with an adult.
