Strange Worlds - 1781

Austin,TX

Enter a world of two-fisted justice and wide-eyed wonder, a world of weird menace and mad science, a world of pulse-pounding peril and thrilling adventure! Welcome to STRANGE WORLDS, an improvised pulp hero anthology! Inspired by such iconic characters as The Shadow and Doc Savage, every episode of STRANGE WORLDS presents a thrilling tale set in a simpler time of heroes and villains, marvels and monsters'performed in the tradition of dime novels, radio serials and Saturday matinees, where high stakes action, drama, romance, and danger reign supreme!

STRANGE WORLDS debuted as the Hideout Theatre's main stage production in spring of 2013. Born of a love of heroic fiction and theatrical storytelling, the original cast members created stock protagonists molded around existing pulp hero archetypes. Each show presented a double feature starring these heroes, playing out within a shared universe. Since its initial run, STRANGE WORLDS has been featured in the Unscripted New York Improvised Theatre Festival, Nerdprov at The Institution Theatre, and the Shaken and Stirred costume party at Spider House Ballroom.
