The play was regarded as the most epic to date. It sold out before opening and ran from Sept 24th to Nov 16th, 2014. Diving into creator Jon Braver’s roots in fantasy adventure, Lies Within placed the audience in the role of rabid fans of Elena Fitzgerald; a reclusive, dark fantasy author who has gone missing, along with her daughter Mary. Determined to uncover the whereabouts of their favorite novelist, the audience choose to break into her manor. Once inside, the fabric of reality tears apart as Elena’s literary characters come to life, sworn to protect and guide their creator toward finishing her greatest novel.
Your obsession has led you here. You stand within the manor of the great author, Elena Fitzgerald. To the larger world, Miss Fitzgerald is a beloved novelist, creator of the Stygian Ascent; a twisted epic of dark fantasy.
To you, Elena is everything.
You’ve wept over the lives and deaths of her characters. You’ve dreamt of walking within her world; a dark world that follows the life of Elena’s daughter, Mary, on a hopeless quest to be rejoined with her mother. Part fiction, part reflection of reality… as Elena’s own daughter went missing before the series began.
For years now, no books have been released, nor has there been any sign of Mary or Elena. In its place, we hear only rumors of suicide, starvation… madness. Like Elena, you have suffered long enough. Her story must continue, must find its end to bring peace to your long-waiting minds. You have invaded Miss Fitzgerald’s home, trapping yourself within. Now let fear lead you to uncover the mystery of Elena’s silence.
