The play would focus on several characters, but one of them would be Henry Creel, who would eventually become Vicna, Jimmy Campbell Bauer’s character and the true villain of the story from the beginning, without even appearing.

Just as Season 4 took the time to show glimpses of Henry’s life and his transformation into Vecna, the play will introduce much of his past so fans can learn more about the great enemy that must be defeated in Part 5.

In the final season of Weird things, the mighty pioneer group must find a way to permanently eliminate Vecna ​​and his army, now that the Upside Down has begun taking over Hawkins at the end of the previous installment. For this reason, clues about Henry’s past that the play can give away may prove very important in order to defeat him.
