Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

A young doctor in Victorian England, locked inside an insane asylum, endeavours to convince his doctors and the audience, of his sanity by recounting the events of a murder he committed on his elderly patient. The reason? The old man’s hideous eye.

But there is more to this tale of the macabre, as the nurse investigates the mystery as to what happened really to his patient’s missing previous caregiver, while simultaneously getting to the truth of the old man’s illness. Is he really as sick as he claims?

Adapted from the works of Edgar Allen Poe:

Set within the mind of the master of the gothic Edgar Allen Poe, this new gothic horror by Jackson Fryer is a love letter and homage to the author and the macabre as a whole.

Exploring themes of insanity, paranoia, and deception, this brand new horror story draws from Poe’s most famous works, including ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’, ‘The Black Cat’, ‘The Masque of the Red Death’, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’, and, of course, ‘The Raven’.

MOTHER’S DAY DISCOUNT: 2 for 1 deal when you bring your mother the Sunday May 14th performance. Use code mothersvultures14 when booking (if you are purchasing other tickets, please do so in a separate transaction).

Taking place within an asylum, ‘Under the Vulture’s Eye’ will be performed inside the rustic Woolloongabba Substation, located in Brisbane (just a stone’s throw away from the Gabba), capturing the feel of England in the midst of the industrial revolution.
