The Assassination of Edgar Allan Poe – Immersive Theater

  • SHARE:

Trespass in the world of Edgar Allan Poe. Decide which stories to follow through brooding Victorian mansions in an immersive theater experience exploring the final days of the literary Master of the Macabre. The world premiere of “The Assassination of Edgar Allan Poe,” will present 18 performances from June 7 to August 17, 2019 in and around the Victorian mansions of Highland Park’s Heritage Square Museum. Staged in both interior and exterior locations, the strange life and mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe will dramatically emerge as audience members decide which characters to follow in this immersive theatrical event. “A spectator could view the production 24 times and never see the same show twice. If you’ve only seen it once, you haven’t seen it all,” says director Devon Armstrong. This production features 15 actors, multiple storylines, and opportunities for audience members to arrive at their own conclusions about what really happened during Poe’s final days. The humor and tragedy of Poe’s life unfolds against the 19th Century background, as the play reveals how those around the famed literary figure – whose life ended tragically in 1849 – twisted the facts, re-shaded events and manipulated Poe’s legacy for vengeance.
