GCRC – TWISTED TALES OF POE
Adaptation by Philip Grecian
Co-directed by Corey Strauss & Jewell Whitaker
Four stories from Edgar Allan Poe are told in the form of a staged radio drama, with actors reading from scripts at floor microphones, all while sound effects and music are performed live. The prisoners of Leverett Street Jail, Death Warrant Division, await their fates as three of the doomed souls tell their stories, and we enter the mind of a fourth. Next, Montresor tells of luring Fortunato away from carnival and into the wine cellar with the promise of sampling from a Cask of Amontillado. He proffers the notion that by walling Fortunato up to die, he has done a service to humanity. In the third tale, we enter the mind of the catatonic Poet, who has witnessed the death of his lover or has, perhaps, been responsible for it. After the memorial service, the Poet is visited by guilt … and The Raven. Finally, Bedloe, who has buried an axe in his wife’s skull and hidden her in the cellar, is brought to justice by The Black Cat.
