Upon A Midnight Dreary
The Last Act Theatre Company staged an unforgettable night of adaptations from Edgar Allan Poe’s canon of enthrallingly visceral prose. LATco.’s Upon a Midnight Dreary included Poe’s infamous The Conqueror Worm, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Tell Tale Heart. These uniquely chilling yarns will be dramatized in light of new relevance to today’s audience focusing on the most grotesque details of the human dilemma and examining the sanity of avoiding madness in an increasingly mad world.
Featuring scripts by Bretton B. Holmes and Greg Klein and performances by Andrew Brett, Sam Mercer, Sara Billeaux, Emily Kennedy, Karen Alvarado, Travis Bedard, Andrew Rodgers, Joshua Baker, and Clay Avery, Upon a Midnight Dreary was hailed as “a great spooky evening” and “a must see” by reviewers.
