The Raven

Imagine a show that has no audience, only characters and an invisible thread that guides them through the story in real-time. This is the premise that drove the storytellers behind The Raven, a first of its kind tech-empowered immersive theater experience.

The narrative chronicles the epic life of famed Gothic author Edgar Allan Poe, and weaves his fantastical works into an interactive plot line that all participants play a part in. The team collaborated to create, as Scott puts it, “something that is beyond an immersive show, it’s an intimate human experience.”
