Eerie Goings On at Torn Space: "Fall of the House of Usher" (Catch it While You Can)!

Eerie Goings On at Torn Space: "Fall of the House of Usher" (Catch it While You Can)!

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Like an extended Edward Gorey illustration come to life, Torn Space's production of "The Fall of the House of Usher," written by Steven Berkoff, based on the Edgar Allen Poe story, is relentless in its macabre creepiness--though it does throw in a light touch.

As directed by Irish Classical Theatre Company's artistic director Vincent O'Neill, the play, at 70 minutes long, offers an intense portrait of the Usher siblings, Roderick (David Oliver) and Madeline (Cassie Gorniewicz), as they molder in their ancient crumbling home. They are the last of their family line, and it's not giving away to much to say that it's not looking too good for the name to carry on. O'Neill, who studied in his youth with master mime Marcel Marceau, evokes his training in his staging and direction--the agile cast, which also includes Andrew Kottler, is physically able to bring the audience along for the ride.
