Gather thy ravens, poppeth thy popcorn, and prepareth for a good a time!
The table has been set, the soup is bubbling, and now, Shipwrecked Comedy‘s Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party is just days away from its web premiere. This Gala for Friends Potluck is one for the ages, taking some of history’s most iconic literary figures and throwing them into a Clue-like environment where comedy, tragedy, romance, and intrigue reign supreme.
Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, stars and producers Sean Persaud (Edgar Allan Poe), Sinead Persaud (Lenore), and Mary Kate Wiles (Annabel Lee), along with Ashley Clements (Charlotte Brontë) and Curt Mega (Guy De Vere), took the stage at GeekyCon earlier this month to debut most of the series’ first episode. But as you’d expect with a murder mystery, they ended things on a cliffhanger!
In addition to the above cast, Poe Party will also feature:
- Joey Richter as Ernest Hemingway
- Lauren Lopez as George Eliot
- Blake Silver as H.G. Wells
- Sarah Grace Hart as Emily Dickinson
- Margie Mintz as Agatha Christie
- Whitney Avalon as Mary Shelley
- Jim O’Heir as Constable Jim
- Ryan Garcia as Eddie the Banker
- Clayton Snyder as Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Tom DeTrinis as Oscar Wilde
- Jimmy Wong as Constable Jimmy
- Tara Perry as Louisa May Alcott
- Jessica Jade Andres as Krishanti
