november nights: a midnight dreary
World Premiere by Scott Dixon
October 29 through November 15
Our 100th Production!
Once upon a midnight dreary, as I pondered weak and weary over many a tome of forgotten lore...
Continuing our commitment to introducing new works to the American stage, we are proud to produce the world premiere of A Midnight Dreary written by resident artist Scott Dixon.
From his hospital bed, Edgar Allan Poe wanders through a feverish dream mixing scenes from his life and works. But is he simply lost in a labyrinth of his own making, or being given a last chance to set things right?
"This telling of Poe's life," says Executive Director Hal Cropp, "centers around the ghosts that 'haunt' us, and what it is about our lives that will echo on after we've gone. And the questions are raised in a manner that infuses the story with the beauty of Poe's poetry and the titillation that accompanies his most famous stories."
