A Theatrical Journey: Shuddersome: Tales of Poe

Shuddersome: Tales of Poe
Written by Christy Lawson

If you’re looking for a vivid and theatrical adaptation of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s greatest works, look no further than Shuddersome: Tales of Poe by Lindsay Price. With three play lengths available, this is a perfect vehicle for your next student production, a great competition piece or an excellent cross-curricular classroom study piece.

The thumping of a heartbeat. The creek of a door. The howl of a bitter wind. The gong of a clock tower. The clang of alarm bells. The sound of beating wings getting closer and closer…

Specters, ghosts and ghouls come alive in this vivid theatrical adaptation of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known works. Included are The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Masque of the Red Death.

Poe’s words rise from the page like corpses from the grave. Be careful. Do you hear that tap, tap, tapping?

Paul Milisch from Madison East High School in Madison, WI was happy to share photos and kudos of this talented group of performers as they took audiences on their own incredible journey with this theatrical adaptation:

We advanced to the next round of the WI High School Theatre Festival. Here are some photos from our final dress.
