Blackout Theatre Company is remounting their first ensemble created play, The Poe Project: Merely This and Nothing More. Blackout’s ground-breaking production was a major hit with audiences during its first run. The original play is inspired by the poems, tales and essays of Edgar Allen Poe.
Blackout's tale follows Dr. Valdemar Usher, a prolific scientist, lost in his dark experimentations. Dr. Usher is paid visit by an old friend, August Dupine, who brings along a new assistant, Rowena. Dupine hopes that the beautiful Rowena will help guide Usher back to sanity. Can love drag Dr. Usher out of his madness? Or will his scientific passion engulf all who surround him? This performance is part of the Poe Festival.
