I Might Be Edgar Allan Poe

Monday, 3 March 2014 to Saturday, 15 March 2014

Dawson Nichols brings "I Might Be Edgar Allan Poe"  to the Bakehouse after receiving 5 STARS for his other Fringe 2014 show "Virtual Solitaire"
(see review attached below).

"I  Might Be Edgar Allan Poe" is a crowd-pleasing and horrific comedy about Joseph, a man who believes he just might be the master of the macabre. For this he is institutionalized, but at the OakBrook facility he uncovers uncanny parallels between his life and that of Edgar Allan Poe. With doctors and fellow inmates he explores these parallels until he becomes convinced that he really is Poe. Joseph thinks this has solved the issue, but his doctors aren’t so easily convinced.

True to Poe, this production moves from bizarre horror to outlandish humor to poignant drama. Audiences familiar with Poe’s works will love this new look at the old master. Audiences unfamiliar with Poe’s works will revel in the unusual mixture of comedy and horror.

“Nichols shows us not just the horror of the madness we so love in Poe, but also the humanity behind the horror, the context for the madness.”  – The Austin Chronicle
“The script is extraordinary, Nichols’s performance is stunning.”   - The Victoria Times Colonist
“A shaman-like performance.”   – The Seattle PI
“Intensity, thy name is Dawson Nichols.” – Vancouver Sun

This show is particularly suitable for schools. Matinees can be arranged either at the Bakehouse or in your own school. For more information on school performances please email the performer directly at:  dawsonnichols@gmail.com

Wow! This sort of world-class offering is the reason we hover around the Fringes. The whole astonishing package is simply, insanely brilliant. Rating: 5 (review from "Virtual Solitaire")

5 STARS. - Every Fringe festival there are a few fantastic performances which theatre goers really shouldn't miss out on and this is one of them.
Cameron England - The Advertiser
Everyone in attendance was left on the edge of their seat.... an entertaining, touching and thought provoking piece leaving you to ponder the nature of the world well into your drive home.
