“The Dark Fantastic: An Immersive Storytelling Experience,” a time-twisting tale of a boy with two hearts, told by touring artist Martin Dockery, is staged at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 2-4, at iDiOM Theater, 1418 Cornwall Ave.
Accompanied by a musical score, the audience will journey to a solitary house in the middle of the desert to hear the tale of an old man, the woman he loves, and her son, a boy who has two hearts. The story moves forward and backward through time, from a car crash in a barren landscape to a jammed photocopier in a hastily constructed city, bringing together three disparate characters, one of whom is you, the audience, in a world that is as fantastical as it is mundane, and as terrifying as it is alive with wonder.
Tickets are $10. Details: idiomtheater.com.
