Auditions for First Round of Productions.
"Poe! Poe! Poe!" by Kathryn Schultz Miller
Runs: October 7 - 29, 2017
Rehearsals are Sunday and Tuesday evenings
Scenes with fantasy (such as the wild heart-beats in "The Tell-Tale Heart") and comedy (the humorous account from "Some Passages in the Life of a Lion" in which Poe satirizes the relationship between himself and his guardian). Although everyone today agrees that Poe is one of America's greatest authors, he found little recognition in his lifetime until the publishing of "The Raven" not long before he died. Among the many touching scenes in this play is the one between Poe and his most loyal editor, Graham, in which Poe is ridiculed and humiliated. And then we hear Poe recite "The Raven" with defiance and passion. The play ends where it began - at Poe's death - not with a quiet death, but a final defiant excerpt from "Life of Thingum Bob, Esq." in which Poe reveals the meaning of his life: "Through joy, through sorrow, through it all - I wrote!"

"Most Wretched Deathbed Fever Dreams of Edgar Allan Poe" by Donna Latham
Runs: October 6-28, 2017.
Rehearsals are Monday-Wednesday-Friday
After a violent squall ushers in a sweltering heat wave, Annabelle stumbles upon a delirious man in the gutter. He is unable to recall his name, Edgar Allan Poe, or how he arrived in his hallucinatory state. Annabelle drags him to her lover Lucretia's Memento Mori Shoppe, where Lucretia creates photographs of the dead. Lucretia vows to provide the mysterious stranger a safe place to peacefully pass from the earthly realm. As Death threatens to take Poe to the bowels of hell, Ghosts of his past combine with characters and images from his literary works to torment Poe in his terror of premature burial. Can Poe make peace with his untimely demise and find solace in death?
