This is a world premiere, adapted by James Rana, based on the first modern detective stories ever written. C. Auguste Dupin is a recluse living in Paris, avoiding people and the bill collectors, when an American journalist comes to interview him. As the great detective recalls his cases, the characters spring to life on stage. Six actors portray 50 roles in Edgar Allan Poe's famous “Murders in the Rue Morgue,” “The Murder of Marie Roget,” and “The Purloined Letter.”
Everyone in the cast has performed with ELTC before: Mark Edward Lang, Shelley McPherson, James Rana, Thomas Raniszewski, Fred Velde, and Grace Wright. Gayle Stahlhuth directs.
