The Speakeasy Society has been producing immersive shows for the Los Angeles crowd for 7 years. The Johnny Cycle is one of its shows, and it is looking to return this fall in Los Angeles for a limited 4-week engagement. It explores the aftermath of WWI and how it affected Dalton Trumbo’s life and career. To make it a reality, the team has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help with reasonable ticket prices, compensation for artists, technical equipment, and extending the show.

The Johnny Cycle is inspired by Trumbo’s novel, Johnny Got His Gun, and guests will experience the devastation caused by politics, power, and war. The campaign for the immersive theatrical show hopes to raise $23,000, and it will feature 13 performers in a historic venue with over 50 possible performance combinations. The show will feature performances with a guided, individualized experience that lasts around 120 minutes. Guests will need to be 14 and over and be mobile. However, there will be a limited number of performances that will be friendly for wheelchair access.

This is the first crowdfunding campaign from The Speakeasy Society. Pre-sale tickets are exclusive via Indiegogo, and donors will get perks like behind-the-scenes tours, VIP ticket access with exclusive content, and cast meet-and-greets.

The Johnny Cycle will premiere on August 22, 2019, and will run for 4 weeks at Mountain View Mausoleum (2300 Marengo Avenue Altadena,
California 91001).

The Speakeasy Society is based in LA and has worked on interactive plays and have partnered with companies like The Broad Stage, Golden Road Brewing Company, and Two Bit Circus. The latter is working with Speakeasy Society on a new project that launches in July.
