About the story
Join the dauntless Prince Prospero and his courtiers at a wild masquerade ball in their remote, exotic castle. It’s true; a horrifying plague is devastating the countryside, but behind these walls, in a maze of sensuously embellished rooms, beats the heart of life. Here, there is music, there is dancing, there is a reverie of bizarre and voluptuous costumes, a multitude of dreams. There is beauty, there is pleasure, there is wine. All are safe, fear is forgotten…until the ebony clock strikes twelve…Who is that strange masked figure? Who dares to lurk among us like an apparition of the Red Death itself? Who dares insult us with this mockery!
About the production
The Masque of the Red Death is a classic tale of terror by the 19th century American writer Edgar Allan Poe, father of the modern horror story. Written in 1842, “The Masque” is now well-entrenched in popular culture, with numerous film, stage, audio, computer game, and graphic novel adaptations. Our version is performed in a unique ensemble style of Readers Theatre that combines storytelling with music, movement, and creative staging. We invite the audience to enter the imagined world created by Poe’s extravagant language and compelling images.
