Poe’s Death Day (Monday)
Eleven-year-old Edgar Allan has only one goal: to be the most remarkable boy at English boarding school. He has only one obstacle: Edgar Allan.
A manic lullaby inspired by the childhood and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe.
Edgar Allan is a two-person dark musical-comedy, adapted from the short story William Wilson by Edgar Allan Poe, created and performed by Katie Hartman and Nick Ryan. It follows eleven-year-old Edgar Allan in his first year at Manor House School, as he seeks to gain academic ascendancy over the student body. All goes to plan until another boy named Edgar Allan arrives in class… complicating his schemes of dominance. Edgar Allan is a dark, comedic riff on the obsessions, the mania, and the insanity that haunted the life and work of America’s first professional writer.
Edgar Allan premiered at the 2013 Twin Cities Horror Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has been performed over one hundred times and toured festivals across the United States and Canada. The show is a six time ‘Best of the Fest’ winner, receiving awards in London, Orlando, Ithaca, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Edmonton. The “Edgar Allan” original cast album is a finalist for the first annual Saturday Visiter Awards presented by Poe Baltimore. More information available at www.thecoldharts.com
