The Torpedo Factory Artists' Association commissioned Through the 4th Wall for a site-specific, interactive theatrical production.
A Dream Within a Dream: Madness is a surreal interpretation of the life, works, and mad genius of Edgar Allan Poe. The year is 1849 and since the death of his wife, Virginia, Poe has become increasingly unhinged. He's been all over the city, seemingly disoriented, possibly inebriated, reciting passages from his darkest of works—and always searching for his beloved. The audience becomes part of the story, interacting with characters and traveling with Poe between waking and dreaming, sanity and madness.
