ITSAZOO productions is pleased to present DEBTS, a unique blend of live theatre, haunted house, and radio play at the historic Roedde House Museum in Vancouver’s West End. Inspired by the classic works of Edgar Allen Poe, and set in the style of 80’s slasher flicks, the audience will join five teenagers as they crash a wedding from hell and discover that some DEBTS can only be paid with their lives. DEBTS runs October 19-31, 2011.
Written and directed by Jessie-nominated Mack Gordon, DEBTS features performances from James Avramenko, Bryan Nothling, Jayme Burke, Keira Danniels, Dan Johnston, Mike Klemak, Brett Harris, Laureen Smith and Kaitlin Williams.
Built in 1893, the Roedde House Museum acts as perfect backdrop and haunting setting for this unique play. This genuine heritage home gives the opportunity for authentic experiences that an audience would never be able to have in a theatre. DEBTS creates a narrative through line for Poe's tales, philosophies and moods, including The Fall of the House of Usher, Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Premature Burial and other classic tales.
