A MIDNIGHT DREARY

 

We Happy Few Productions and Spectre Arts presents

A MIDNIGHT DREARY
A Night of Murder, Madness and Macabre Theatrics.

Featuring three Edgar Allen Poe stories, each with a drink pairing.

Follow us down the rabbit hole of Poe’s mind as we wind our way through his stories, his madness, and the grounds of Spectre Arts – all with a drink in hand. This premiere production is a site-specific piece, and invites you to join Poe (all three of him!) for a first-hand look into the mind of the tortured genius. Using only Poe’s words, We have whipped up a tale complete with music, poetry, and terrifying tales of death and destruction.
