Robert Ford's Fall of the House Premieres at Alabama Shakespeare Fest April 9

News   Robert Ford's Fall of the House Premieres at Alabama Shakespeare Fest April 9 The Edgar Allan Poe-inspired The Fall of the House makes its world premiere April 9-25 as part of Alabama Shakespeare Festival's Southern Writers' Project in Montgomery, AL.

The Fall of the House, written by Robert Ford, is "a darkly sophisticated work that involves a mystic whose supernatural life intertwines with famed writer Edgar Allan Poe and that of a young African-American female architect in the 20th century," according to ASF. "Through movement in time and place over the course of 150 years, surprising personal connections and answers to tragic events are revealed."

The Fall of the House is directed by Nancy Rominger, ASF's associate director and director of the Southern Writers' Project. Rominger directed the debut of Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder's The Furniture of Home at ASF last winter.

The cast includes Jonathan C. Kaplan, Erika LaVonn, Margaret Loesser Robinson, Angela K. Thomas, Gerritt Vandermeer and Ta'Myia Narcisse-Cousarare.

Other recent ASF world premieres include Gee's Bend (also by Wilder) and Mark Saltzman's Rocket City. Both plays have been published by Samuel French, Inc.
