SUNDAY FEBRUARY 27th
The Ghost Of Poe
8:00pm (doors at 7:30)
tickets $20 includes beverages and desserts
In “The Ghost of Poe,” poet and actor m. s. sanders explores the complexity of Edgar Allan Poe’s character through dramatic recitations of his poems, excerpts from his short stories as well as his correspondence and quotes.
This three act play seeks to demonstrate the correlations between his work and his struggle to deal with the universally human aspects of life, love and loss; a journey filled with obsession, humor, desperation, romance, remorse and resignation.
Rather than add to the confusion and contradiction often encountered when attempting to present a biographically accurate Poe, sanders strives for historical, yet dramatic and impassioned accuracy, by presenting a portrait of the man almost exclusively through his works and letters.
In this way, it is hoped the much beloved and esteemed poet, author and critic will be allowed to speak for himself, while his inscrutability and mystique remains intact.
