A Midnight Dreary

Capitol Hill Arts Workshop

Follow We Happy Few down the rabbit hole of Poe's mind as we wind our way through his stories, his madness, and his haunts - all with a drink in hand. This production is a site-specific piece, originally designed for Spectre Arts and uniquely tailored for each space it's performed in. We invite you to join Poe (all three of him!) for a first-hand look into the mind of the tortured genius. Using only Poe's words, We Happy Few has whipped up a tale complete with music, poetry, and terrifying tales of death and destruction.

Presented by We Happy Few

"...We Happy Few’s A Midnight Dreary may not include the poem from which its title is derived, but between Edgar Allan Poe’s synaesthetic use of language, the spirited performances of McGee, Reynolds, and Turner, and a range of immersive effects, including a drink pairing, audiences are in store for an intriguing hour of storytelling from an American master of weird fiction."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...I was afraid combining Edgar Allan Poe with jokes would result in half-baked comedy that disrupts the darkness of his stories, but We Happy Few treats the tales well. McGee, Reynolds, and Turner poke fun at the lighter facets of “The Masque of the Red Death,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” They mock party culture during Prince Prospero’s masquerade ball. They dig into Fortunato’s people-pleasing friendliness. And Reynolds, who plays The Tell-Tale Heart’s narrator, humorously taps into the character’s narcissism."
