A comfortable, suburban family man receives a desperate call from a forgotten childhood acquaintance. Thus starts a journey into madness that takes Ed Allen to the House of Usher and its terrible secrets and temptations. This modern adaptation of the classic short story by Edgar Allen Poe transports Gothic horror into the 90s, questioning the definition of sanity in the same way Poe did. This is an exhilarating theatrical adventure with an apocalyptic ending. Actors and designers will be challenged in new ways in this unpredictable and wildly entertaining play. Use of the music is not mandatory but will enhance productions.

Exquisitely imaginative, this production stretches beyond the norms of stage productions, challenging all involved. From set construction (the building falls apart), to psyche arcs, (descent into obsession's pit), the story compels our full attention with every fragment, watchable. Passion evokes this production, bringing all involved to the edge of our comfort zone, and resolution is replaced with the open end of an ongoing enigma. Finally, a plot that is not neatly packaged!
