Chicago Mammals to Stage All Girl Edgar Allan Poe

GB-All-Girl-Edgar-Allan-Poe.jpg
The Chicago Mammals is staging its third All Girl Project, opening Friday, Oct. 17 with All Girl Edgar Allan Poe, a festival of one-acts inspired by Poe's works interpreted in movement, music, poetry, dance and monologue.

The first two projects were All Girl Moby Dick in 2012 and All Girl Frankenstein last year. Artistic director Bob Fisher is planning All Girl Dracula for 2015.

All Girl Edgar Allan Poe will feature the following pieces:
The Raven, adapted and directed by Anne Wilson
The Tell-Tale Heart, adapted by M.E.H. Lewis and directed by Leigh Barrett
The Black Cat, adapted by Erin Orr, Amy Harmon and Liz Chase and directed by Chris Conley
The Pit and the Pendulum, adapted and directed by Charlotte Drover
The Imp of the Perverse, adapted and directed by Sasha Warren
The Masque of the Red Death, adapted and directed by Whitney LaMora and choreographed by Sasha Warren

The company notes that the project provides artistic opportunities for Chicago actresses to play, produce, devise and perform in roles that are rarely (if ever) performed by women "with an emphasis on turning traditional tales into raw, emotive, phantasmagoric concepts that can only be described as 'Mammalian'."

All Girl Edgar Allan Poe will be presented at 8pm Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 8 at the Chicago Mammals' Zoo Studios: 4001 N Ravenswood, suite 205. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online or at the door.
