The Fall of the House of Usher

Theatre Lab Company

Here’s something that sounds like an interesting night out if you’re in London around 12 – 15 December.

During a dull, dark, and soundless day when clouds hung oppressively  low in the  heavens,  I found myself within view of the melancholy House of Usher. Here was an iciness, a sinking, a sickening of the heart – an unredeemed dreariness of thought. What was it that so unnerved me in the contemplation of the House of Usher?

A macabre and gothic site specific theatrical performance where the enigmatic Roderick Usher, the ethereal Madeline and their strange visitor, Edgar, perform a story of sinister  beauty, sick eroticism, and cynical love in the shadows of decadent chandeliers, candles, and the haunting music of the piano…
