Imagine exploring a nineteenth-century church in the black of night, armed only with a small flashlight. This is GUTTERDRUNK, a blend of theater, performance art and live music, which brings viewers deep into the hallucinatory mind of famed writer, Edgar Allan Poe. Actors are buried alive, bricked behind walls, smothered and stabbed, until only a rattled and wasted Poe remains, without fiction to blur his tormented reality.
GUTTERDRUNK explores the hysterical and haunting effects of alcohol on actor, character and author in a way that tests the limits of theatrical experience.
Featuring Louis Aquiler*, Naomi Bland, Vance Clemente, Risa Cohen, Andrew Huber, Katarina Hughes, Rachel Lynn Jackson, Chad Miller, Michael Pantozzi, Clea Rivera*, Charles Rohlfs, and George Walsh.
