Second Star to the Right: Hook's Revenge was the epic conclusion of Transgression's three episode adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan. Six performances were held at the former Dante's Down the Hatch in Underground Atlanta to a sold out audience.
Kidnapped by Hook's Pirates at the end of Episode Two: The Neverlands, Episode Three found the Lost Boys and Darling children prisoners on Captain Hook's Ship, the Jolly Roger. Fearing their demise at the hands of ruthless pirates, and the vengeful Hook, they eagerly awaited Peter Pan's arrival to rescue them from a watery grave.
Second Star to the Right: The Neverlands was the second episode of the series that took place at the Atlanta Treehouses of Peter Bahouth, which was transformed into Neverland, specifically, the home of the Lost Boys. Attendees were welcomed into the treehouses as they actively participated in the preparation of Peter and the Lost Boys going to battle with Captain James Hook and his pirates.
Transgression, originally an immersive literary experience, took a more theatrical approach in 2017. Exploring J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan, they ventured into creating a 3-part series of performances hosted at various venues in Atlanta over the course of 10 months.
The first episode took place at the Margaret Mitchell House, which was transformed into the home of the Darling's. For the evening, attendees were treated as guests of Mr. and Mrs. Darling and their charming children Wendy, Michael, and John.
Lost in Oz was Transgression’s last immersive literary experience before transitioning to a more theatrical approach. For two days, Urban Sprout Farms was transformed into the Land of Oz, where the audience was encouraged to explore the enchanting realm and interact with the fascinating characters of L. Frank Baum’s Oz.
Transgression’s fourth installment of their immersive reading series was The Dating Game: Literary Icons Looking for Love. A sold out crowd at Dad’s Garage watched as some of literature's most notorious romantic figures tried to make a match in a remake of the classic 1970's TV dating game show.
Mass Hysteria: A Literary Installation of Collective Delusions took the third installment of Transgression in a new direction. Incorporating stories and found art from writers, local artists, and photographers into a single space to truly capture its theme of conspiracy theories and urban legends in a cryptic abandoned bunker.
The ominous Villa de Grip in Inman Park set the stage for Born Under a Bad Sign. An evening of sinister performances and macabre readings took place evoking southern classics such as Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man Is Hard To Find, William Faulkner's Sanctuary, Tennessee Williams' Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Eudora Welty's The Ponder Heart, James Dickey's Deliverance, and Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.
Transgression launched its first immersive reading in January of 2015. The Big House on Ponce was transformed into the CLUE mansion for one night and the audience was given the task of judge and jury, deciding the fate of each character as they pleaded their innocence.
