21st Century Poe: Falling for the Ushers


October 10th


In this retelling of the classic horror tale ‘Fall of the House of Usher’, haunted twins Roderick and Madeline Usher have left behind the misty Gothic manor to become superstars of Glasgow's contemporary art world, thanks to their macabre conceptual installations. But when Madeline's old art school admirer Ed shows up, their tragic downfall is as inescapable as ever.

Marty Ross's unique performing style, combining evocative language with expressionistic mime and gesture, makes full-blown theatre out of the story as he embodies a cast list of larger than life characters.
