THE KANSAS COLLECTION
“WHEN DOROTHY LEFT, SHE PUT THE SCARECROW IN CHARGE, AND HE IS DETERMINED TO KEEP OZ SAFE NO MATTER THE COST. GLINDA IS GOING TO SHOW HIM EXACTLY WHAT THE COST IS.”
Ripped from the pages of the Frank L. Baum’s “Land of OZ” novels, The Speakeasy Society throws audiences into the middle of an alternate reality experience (ARX) that takes place in real time and evolves according to audiences' responses. Individual choices move the audience on an epic quest to restore the Emerald City to its former glory.

Oz and it’s citizens are in distress. There is civil unrest, there is violence in the streets, and you are being recruited to serve in the Scarecrow’s Armed Militia- but there is deception around every corner, and things aren’t quite what they seem. There’s a storm on the horizon.
Chapter 2: The Axe
The Scarecrow has a mission for the new recruits to his armed militia: investigate members of the Patchwork Resistance that have made their way into our world....but nothing from Oz is what it seems. Allies and friends are very different things. Just remember...There are no wrong answers...Only consequences.

You're going as a guest, but they aren’t the only ones taking a vow…
Chapter 6: The Witch
