From the classic tale of Edgar Allan Poe
October 21 November 5
Poe’s classic tale is retold as a 1930’s detective story. What begins for Brookfield as a pleasant distraction from the hubbub of New York turns into a maelstrom of horror when he discovers his friend Usher’s secret intent and realizes that the lives of everyone in the house are in terrible danger. Told as a series of lightning-paced flashbacks as tough-as nails police detective Michael Shaughnessy questions Brookfield about what actually happened to cause the fire that destroyed the House of Usher, the play moves relentlessly to its terrifying, stunning conclusion.
