a new one act by Richard Mazda

Edgar Allan Poe's stories and glorious Gothic literary style has given us so many classic pieces that it is hard to narrow them down. Poe’s classics such as "The Tell Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat", retold by strange characters that interact with the audience are accompanied by live piano soundtrack. We promise a theatre experience to remember.

In an original one act, ‘An Imaginary Waltz’ - Poe writes a love letter to his dead bride - She appears, they dance but once again Edgar is left empty and bereft. This unusual show also features a site-specific installation ‘POEtry In Redby LIC based artist, Eliot Lable
The unique possibilities of the "Poco" Space at the Secret Theatre will give our audience an intimate sensory theatrical experience. Seating will be limited for our latest Guignol influence production.
