This theatre production is going to seem so real, it’ll almost feel like you could reach out and touch what’s happening in front of you.

Which is exactly what you’ll be doing.

No, really. You’ll be wandering through different rooms, following individuals actors simultaneously performing their storylines in this interactive theatre experience that reimagines Edgar Allan Poe’s last days alive.

Third Wheel Production’s Deep into Darkness¬†invites you into the mind of the legendary author as “he desperately searches for his lost love in this tragic dream within a dream,” experiencing poems like ‘Tell-Tale Heart’ and ‘The Raven.’

Explore over 20 rooms and three floors as you touch objects, rifle through drawers, and read through papers, unravelling “the mystery of [Edgar Allan Poe’s] chaotic descent into madness” at The Cultch from August 13 to 18 and August 20 to 25.

It’s kind of like a 19th-century Victorian era choose-your-own-adventure experience, except creepier and — well — real.

Choose who to follow, which spaces to explore, and come back to experience a whole new story as you’re transported back in time night after night.
