12 Peers Theater is a small Pittsburgh company known for producing great plays, and also for its Mythburgh storytelling events, which until this spring were held live at brillobox. Covid-19 put that on hold but the Mythburgh concept has returned online, in somewhat altered form. It’s now a monthly series titled Yinzer Scared Online. Each episode consists of a spooky Pittsburgh-based story peopled by an imaginary but recurring cast of characters: Think “Night Vale,” except it has video and is expressly for yinz! Click the preceding Yinzer Scared link to watch—and to catch up on episodes you may have missed.
Emma Wagner DeFrange comes back to Mythburgh with her play Blue Rendezvous 2: Purgatory Drift, available this Sunday at 7 p.m. In it, you can catch up with the ghosts of Blue Mist Road in North Park. The production is directed by 12 Peers Literary Manager/Marketing Director, Matt Henderson.
Performers in the Mythburgh series include Christopher Collier, John Feightner, Sara Ashley Fisher, Elizabeth Glyptis, Matt Henderson, Nick Mitchell, Brittany Tague, and various guest stars. Writers include some of the performers plus Ryan Dancho, Emma Wagner DeFrange, Kim El, Wali Jamal, and Brian Pope. Through April 2021 on your scary World Wide Web.
