IN CELEBRATION 2013
The last Tale of Edgar Allan Poe
Written and Directed by Adrian Drew
7:30pm Saturday 07 December 2013
Tickets: £12.00 in advance
There is a decidedly eerie flavour to this year's Christmas celebrations at The Fan Museum when it stages, in the exquisitely painted orangery, the semi-staged rehearsed candle-lit reading of a new play about American writer of ghostly fiction, Edgar Allan Poe.
Poe, who wrote such classics as The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of The House of Usher, died in mysterious circumstances in October 1849 and his literary estate was subsequently entrusted to the man who hated him most of all!
Featuring a cast of four, Uncommon Spring is a play about ideas, human nature, and complex motivations and should appeal to general audiences as well as those with an interest in ghostly fiction. It is unsuitable for those under 16 years of age.
Early booking is essential for this seasonal treat, as all performances of Adrian Drew's shows at The Fan Museum have sold out well in advance. Tickets include festive drinks & snacks as well as VIP private entry to the Museum - decorated for Christmas - and its latest exhibition.
Author Adrian Drew has written 18 plays - all of which have been staged to capacity audiences and his new play Icicles in the Trees will be touring in the spring of 2014. His collection of ghostly short stories Shadows on the Fens will be launched to coincide with these performances and a collected edition of his plays, including The Laws of Shadows, will be published next year by Inde-Books.
Admission to the museum on these special evenings is £12.00 and also provides access to our latest exhibition, plus light refreshments during the intermission.
The 'In Celebration!' series of events allow audiences to meet distinguished personalities from the worlds of arts & entertainment and to enjoy informed conversations & performances within one of London’s most historic and beautiful buildings. Light refreshments are served post performance and entry to the museum’s latest exhibition on the evening of each event is included in the price.
