The Icebox Radio Theater of International Falls is proud to present the classic Edgar Allen Poe story, “The Fall of the House of Usher” at the Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis at 3 p.m. April 14.
The production is an original adaptation of the classic tale of terror, script by IBRT Artistic Director Jeffrey Adams. The production will also feature spectacle sound effects, a theatrical take on the radio theater staple that will feature actual rock slides, spooky sounds from a disassembled piano, and the shrieking metal of a rusted tomb door, said a press release.
The IBRT will also offer a dramatic reading of Poe’s “The Raven” accompanied by disassembled piano, and a third radio piece titled “Ice Lair of the Elder God” which tells the tale of Lovecraftian monsters on Rainy Lake.
This will be the first time in over a decade that the IBRT has performed in the Twin Cities, said the release. Their last visit was at CONvergence, an annual science fiction convention, in 2008.
