Fun, fun, FUN!!! If you remember the old radio shows from the 1930s/40s, or if you've ever heard vintage recordings of those shows, you'll really enjoy this production. There's live Foley and music just like they did in yesteryear.... full review

Captivating and funny. This show reminded me what went into a radio show in the 1940s. Everything is performed live with almost nothing hidden from the audience. A must see.... full review

A fun evening of creepy stories told in the style of an old radio play. ... full review
A great concept executed very well in this new venue addition to the Fringe this year. I was impressed with the low lighting and liked the uses of flashlights, lanterns, and car headlights. The Intimate space was perfect for establishing that creepy feeling. The directing was great, because the actors looked like they were truly in the scary and intense moments. ... full review

This is a very fun show! There's everything you could ask for—classic horror stories, live foley, trivia, & audience interaction. Angela had such a unique idea and she executed it with wit, style and a balanced mix of comedic and creepy moments. The acting was fantastic. I felt for Grace and Tehana's characters and Brendan did a great job at keeping me on the edge of my seat. I was impressed with Doug's versatility (actor, foley artist and piano player)! Kristen and Katie had great chemistry and brought clever comic relief. ... full review

If you enjoy old time radio shows with a horror bent, like Light's Out, The Hermit's Cave, etc. this play does a great job of bringing a couple of those old stories to life. ... full review

Lights Out at the Hermit's Cave comes from a place of pure fun. An ensemble of very good performers demonstrate over-the-top means "good" if done well and in the right context. This company, The Hermit's Cave, stages in a dark room horror radio plays from the 1940s. Not as radio plays, but rather acted out all around you the audience, albeit with a foley artist and live musician to add ambiance. It works! It works delightfully, even in a simple meeting room with most of the lights turned off. I can only imagine how spectacularly this concept might work in a different environment--somewhere with brick walls, maybe a stained glass window and/or an alcove! Of course this kind of thing just grabs the imagination of a Dark Shadows/Night Gal... full review

Don't let the funny bits fool you, this is an absolutely spooky piece of theater. So well done, so spine-tingling -- for real! Ghost stories in the dark, live foley, perfect acting, and spot-on directing -- what a great night of theater. And prizes! This was just an all-around wonderful show. Bravo, Angela Acuna & crew!... full review


When a 5 year old uses a racial epithet a man sets fire to his relationship with his sister, setting into motion a series of events that have tragic consequences for both of their families.

Mind-fu*k fever dream

Have you ever lived with someone and it didn't work out? Like a manic, time-jumping fever dream- Bobbie and August recreate all of their highs and lows of their relationship. Only, they have differing memories and perceptions of the events.
