Scriptwriters/Houston Presents a Staged Reading of Donna's work-in-progress!

Most Wretched Deathbed Fever Dreams of Edgar Allan PoeBy Donna Latham
Directed by Dabrina Sandifer


Theatre Suburbia, 4106 Way Out West DriveHouston, TX 77092
For directions: http://theatresuburbia.org/location.php
Battered. Semi-conscious. Hallucinating in the streets of Baltimore near a temporary polling place. The circumstances surrounding the death of Edgar Allan Poe are shrouded in mystery…. 

Annabelle stumbles upon a nearly dead man in the gutter. She drags him to her lover Lucretia’s Mementi Mori Shoppe, where Lucretia creates photographs of the deceased—and which Annabelle haunts. Can Poe make peace with his impending demise and find solace in death? And what solace can he offer grieving Lucretia?

Photos below from the Scriptwriters/Houston staged reading with a brilliant cast!
