Poe-etic Justice at the Rue Morgue - Gothic interactive whodunnit




Edgar Allan Poe died mysteriously at age 40 after wandering Baltimore wearing someone else's clothes. The cause of death? To this day, no one knows.

Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 5pm
at Paris in a Cup, Orange CA

Join us as we enter the mind of Poe as the light fades from his eyes to determine how he met his maker. 6-18 roles will be available, playing characters from his short stories and poems. Costumes encouraged as well as Gothic attire, or whatever you feel comfortable in.

$62 all inclusive. Evening fare to be served, so invite the gents to join you. Menu info forthcoming.

This is the second event of our yearlong Une Tasse de Paris celebration with JS Devivre, author of the Tea Cozy Mysteries series. We have a slew of interconnected events scheduled in 2019 culminating in a trip to Paris at which we hope you'll join us
