Jack Studio Theatre - Edgar Allan Poe Double Bill - Announcement

We love a challenge.

When we wanted to mix things up, what better than two shows instead of one?
That's right a double bill that takes two of the most beloved Edgar Allan Poe short stories and creates one sweeping epic that also takes a fond look at the Roger Corman adaptations for the silver screen.

So what two have we picked for our biggest challenge to date? None other than...

The Masque of the Red Death
Adapted by Simon James Collier
Directed by Omar F. Okai

In his remote and fortified abbey, the notorious Prince Prospero and a handful of selected cronies have taken refuge to wait out the end of the Red Death, a gruesome plague which has swept over the land. But as the revelry continues a mysterious figure appears, and the Prince is forced to confront his own mortality.

The Fall of the House of Usher
Adapted by Adam Dechanel
Directed by Maud Madlyn

Those that enter the House of Usher never leave.
One man, determined to rescue his captive bride-to-be, is pitted against against the centuries old curse cast upon the Usher family. Can he rescue his love before it's too late?
