Dates: September 7, 2023 - September 24, 2023

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: The Latvian Society


Gunnar Montana transports us once again, this time to a haunting, stirring, supernatural forest known as BLACK WOOD. A deep dive into suspense and the unknown, guests of BLACK WOOD will experience a wicked journey of femme-fatale storytelling.

BLACK WOOD will once again show fans the darker side of Gunnar Montana Productions, with an immersive theater experience that has it all – witches, scorned lovers, and creatures of the night; back flips, hair whips, aerial, and as always, a little stage magic.  BLACK WOOD embraces the sorcery and enchantment of the world around us, and the balance that comes with the exploration of both the good and the unsettling. Guests will be invited into BLACK WOOD to open their minds and escape from reality. 

BLACK WOOD will appear 40 times between September 7th and October 31st.  Tickets and VIP experiences to performances beyond the FringeArts Festival are available at

(1) VIP Table Experience per night can be sold as a single ticket for $350. The VIP Table Experience is the ultimate way to get up close and personal with Gunnar and the BLACK WOOD cast. The Experience includes (4) VIP table seats, (4) official BLACK WOOD t-shirts, a specially-brewed spooky concoction for your table, and a post-show meet and greet with the cast.
