Mr. Dark's Carnival
By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes... Mr. Dark is a malevolent being who, like the carnival he runs, lives off the life force of those he enslaves. He uses the carnival to lure unsuspecting souls to evil, and once the carnival goers succumb to their desires and the temptation of the carnival, they are transformed into one of Mr. Dark’s sideshow freaks. Join us as Circus of the Moon introduces you to the inner workings of Mr. Dark's Carnival!
Persephone Bound: Continuing the Conversation
Micheline Chevrier, Fred Barrette
The story of Persephone Bound follows a young woman’s journey through three vivid realms: The Underworld — a college party that holds the painful memory of her experience of sexual assault; The Court — a bureaucratic hell-sphere where she pursues her fight for justice; and The River (Styx) — a liminal internal space where she grapples with grief, the ambiguity of memory, and the trauma of an event that has left an indelible mark on her life.
