What is it?
The Okai Collier Company present an Edgar Allan Poe Double Feature at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre in London, from Tuesday 6th to Saturday 24th June.
The Masque of the Red Death is adapted by Simon James Collier and 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 is adapted by Adam Dechanel and 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 the centuries old curse cast upon the house. Can he rescue his love before it’s too late?
From the twice nominated ‘Empty Space…Peter Brook Award’ Okai Collier Company comes this haunting double-bill from the master of gothic story-telling, Edgar Allan Poe.
