#PULSE18 – The Black Cat

Performed on Mon 4 Jun


A renegade retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s twisted tale.

Who has not, a hundred times, found himself committing a vile or a silly action, for no other reason than because he knows he should not?

The Black Cat is renegade retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s twisted tale.

Two performers dismember the process of adaptation by reimagining this macabre classic with the cheekiest of glints in their eyes.

An enigmatic writer has adapted Poe’s original story and handed scripts over to Olwen and Ollie. They're now taking merciless liberties with the words – like a madman taking out a furious rage on a helpless pet.

Balanced between the hilarious and the horrific, this show revels in the darkness that hides just beneath the surface. Gravely good fun, but be warned: it will get catty.

Meow.
