2021 Spring Production

Poe: Dreams of Madness

Ages: 12-18
Learn the ins-and-outs of theatre from the team at Inspire Theatre Company, while rehearsing and putting on the production of Poe: Dreams of Madness. Macabre author Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tales come to life in this award-winning adaptation that’s both original and familiar, with classic elements from several of his most famous stories.  It’s nearly midnight, of course, and our troubled protagonist is having difficulty sleeping…or at least he thinks he is: “I am haunted by dreams, even when I wake.”  With the Raven acting as a grim and mischievous tour guide, both the positively dead and the presumed living give breath to Poe retellings similar to his greatest Gothic works, including The Tell-Tale Heart, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Masque of the Red Death, and The Raven.  This ensemble full-length play has a hugely flexible cast of players in front of a ghoulish backdrop sure to invoke drama and horror long after the final curtain falls.  Will Poe ever rest easy again?  Will you?  So sayeth the Raven: nevermore.
