To celebrate Arthur’s Day 2012 ,the Viking Theatre @ The Sheds is presenting a double measure of the dark stuff with two special promenade performances of  Poe Show  – the acclaimed theatrical adaptation of works by Edgar Allan Poe, the tormented genius of Gothic literature.  Poe Show features two of Poe’s best-known stories: The Tell-Tale Heart – a terrifying exploration of murder and guilt, and The Cask of Amontillado – a pitch-black comedy of revenge.

It also includes his chilling unfinished final tale, The Lighthouse along with musical settings of some of his greatest poems.  Poe Show takes us on a deliciously dark descent into the maelstrom of one of history’s most frenzied imaginations.

This special promenade experience at The Sheds will take audience members on a thrilling journey around the back rooms, beer garden and secret orchard of the famous Clontarf hostelry.

SUNDAY INDEPENDENT: “mighty craic, delivered with spine-chilling and hilarious gusto” …  “pure unadulterated joy”

 METRO ****   “delightfully grisly production”

 MAIL ON SUNDAY **** “..just the right amount of wicked humour and sadistic villainy.

 

 SUNDAY TIMES:  “…comic gold….vividly ghoulish lease of life given to Poe’s words.”

IRISH TIMES:  ” a haunting piece of gothic entertainment that pays good tribute to the master of macabre fiction .”
