The Fall of the House

April 12-May 6, 2012
in the Studio Theatre at Walton Arts Center's Nadine Baum Studios


From TheatreSquared Artistic Director Robert Ford, and Sundown Town director Kevin Christopher Fox, a new mystery spanning two centuries.  In this "haunting dreamscape of a play" (Theatre Montgomery), an escaped slave risks her freedom to confront Edgar Allan Poe in his final days.  Centuries later, a celebrated architect on trial for a fatal fire finds clues to an undiscovered past in a lost manuscript of Poe's final work.  The newest play by Robert Ford, premiered at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, reveals the desperate bargains we make for love.
