An archive of the Hot News from 2007

The Fall of the House of Usher in London

click for link

The Fall of the House of Usher will be performed in a church crypt by Virtual Theatre Company.  The actors are Biff Harrison (Roderick Usher), Kate Loughran (Madeline Usher) and Tim Hinchcliffe (Edgar).  The director is John Drewry.  It is at St Andrew's Church, Holborn, London from 17-20 Apr 2007 at 18:00 and 20:00.

The director and actors use the crypt well and create the right atmosphere.  The extended mime of Berkoff has been tailored down, but this means the poetry of the words comes out more.  Kate Loughran's silent bewilderment and panic at the simplest of questions is sublime. Good performances by all three cast members.
