“The Shadows of Edgar Allan Poe.”
Performances begin Friday, Dec. 5 and run three weekends.
The play, directed by Mark Hardiman, LLCC professor of theatre, is a devised piece of theatre that will be built by the acting ensemble which will choose from Poe’s most well-known and accessible works. Through a collaborative process, the ensemble will develop the performance under Professor Hardiman’s direction.
“Devised pieces of theatre can include song, movement, poetry, improvisation, pieces of actual text, striking visual images and reflections on the piece from the point of view of the performers,” says Hardiman.
LLCC Theatre is committed to education in theatre, emphasizing not only performance but also growth in those involved in the production. Those participating will register for college credit or participate through LLCC’s Community Education program.
