“The Delirium of Edgar Allan Poe”- All Profits from ticket sales will be donated to the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum.

About this project

Bedlam Ensemble will be staging “The Delirium of Edgar Allan Poe”-a night of adaptations from Edgar Allen Poe’s breath taking pieces (Including The RavenThe Cask of Amontillado and Berenice ). During the evening, we will present unique dramatizations of his chilling gems focusing on the most grotesque details of human behavior.
We will offer every detail of this production as an opportunity to showcase and celebrate Bedlam Ensemble's thriving community of artists. Everything from the costumes to the set is being selected to mirror our modern societies influence on Poe’s macabre.

           Using a custom designed open space to venture into Poe’s world, Bedlam Ensemble will take the spectator into the mind of Poe ensuring each guest has a unique, personal and breath taking experience, the space will have chambers and lounge areas for our planned extended intermission and post show soiree.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore is currently on the verge of getting its door closed (we will be donating all profits from ticket sales to support the Museum), several medial sources such as the New York Times will writing about our effort to help maintain the Museum doors open.


Within the evening Bedlam Ensemble will intertwine the performance with live music, dance performance and Poem acts where the audience will be part of the story and the story will be contained within the audience.
