THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER

November 2009

The Fall of the House of Usher is “a fantastical tale of the impossible that manifests the crumbling nature of Roderick Usher’s inner decay….The moor’s pestilential environment, the cry of the wind, ancient things groaning under the weight of age. A death, a resurrection”. (Poe and Performance, Berkoff). Poe’s masterful story of insanity, premature burial, and lures us into a surreal and occult dream world, blurring the boundaries between life and death, body and soul, object and subject, beauty and decay where the supernatural is felt with traumatic intensity. — Scena Theatre

 

Press Reviews

“Alisa Mandel’s romantic and moth-eaten costumes … suggests lost elegance.” — Washington City Paper
