In this town, the things in the woods aren’t the ones you need to fear.
Averno, VA was founded in 1695. In 1702, it was razed to the ground. In 1703, it was founded again- better. Purer.
Shadows lurk in the woods, ready to take the sinners. The eyes are always watching. Children disappear. Storefronts never change. There are always whispers.
Welcome to Averno.
Averno is a new multimedia universe that defies genre and encompasses a play, several musicals, two novels, a TV Show, a podcast, a collection of short stories, and more. Set over the course of 300 years, the through-line of the various projects isn’t a single character- instead, it follows the secrets, lies, histories and mysteries that enshroud the town of Averno. Conspiracies and cults, sinners and saviors, Averno has it all. A love letter to Southern Gothic, the occult, and the seedy underbellies of seemingly peaceful towns everywhere, Averno is a sprawling map of the secrets that intertwine humanity, the horrors we inflict, and the mysteries we can never unravel.
