The Killing of Poe
The Killing of Poe by Barbara Hockley
Embrace the darkness before it sneaks up behind you
A fading actor, reduced to bit parts in variety shows, can only relive his glory days of performing Shakespeare inside his own head, albeit aided by a troupe of talented voices from the past. But even in these private theatrical moments, he finds himself lacking, forgetting and losing interest. The Voices inside his head are losing him and the situation is getting worse. On a chance hearing of an Edgar Allan Poe story being narrated, the Actor is seduced into the gloomy, gothic, macabre and ultimately tragic world that Poe characters inhabit. If the 'Voices of Shakespeare' want to survive, they must get rid of Poe and his grey, gloomy, bleak horror stories . But the Narrator of Poe fights back .. and his material is good.
Plus, he has a raven.
Surreal, dark and funny (ish)
This is not a children's show, but if you're happy to take someone to see 'Macbeth' (for example) you'll be fine!
The cast are Mark Cox, Hugh Farey, Ann Smith, Anne Churchill, Sally Handley, Allan Flaxman, Sue Thomas and Dom Edwards
It is written and directed by Barbara Hockley and the production team (to date) includes Jane Merry, Josh Herriott and Alison Stobart.
