Here lies Joyland. This once iconic theme park now rots -abandoned- in Wichita, Kansas. It is here, four teens break inside the rusted gates in a quest to uncover Joyland's dark history.

    We saw the show on Friday night. It was a well-done production and the performances were top notch. The story was good too, although there’s a lot to digest. I’m not 100% sure that everything made sense, starting with the sister’s confession. Still, I’d recommend it.

    I was skeptical as there really wasn’t a set. But their dialogue painted pictures of the abandoned theme park for the audience. A very nice job by the cast.

    Good show. Very talented cast, who delivered some heavy material well. Good script about a (creepy) real-life place some of us may remember going to as kids!
