Grace is dead. You are invited to her wake.
“Bitter at the End” was the second immersive experience from E3W Productions, bringing guests face-to-face with death, this time fracturing it through the lens of the Seven Deadly Sins to explore the different ways in which we struggle against loss and process grief.
With only seven audience members per show, “Bitter at the End” was an achingly intimate experience, diving deep into a striking, strange and surreal world of sorrow that asks the questions: What are we left with at the end of a life? And what can we take, if anything, from Death?
Brutal, beautiful storytelling... with an attention to detail and mood that in unrivaled in the Los Angeles immersive theatre scene... The kind of piece that crawls around inside your skull... one artfully crafted scene after another. — Haunting, 2018
Dynamic and moving, meticulously crafted confessionals that blend production design, writing, directing and performance into cohesive wholes. — No Proscenium, 2018
