The 2014 Autumn tour of Little Earthquake’s The Tell-Tale Heart begins in October. Laurence Saunders gives a brilliant performance as Poe’s tormented narrator Simon and I join him on stage as his Doctor, revealing the sonic details of Simon’s murderous tale with an array of props and vegetables.
Have you ever envisaged the sound a dismembered human body might make? Well in Little Earthquake’s adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s gruesome short story The Tell Tale Heart, sound is the play’s third character…
As Simon retells the story, Iain provides the sounds from a table of strange and fascinating props. In fact, the audience are in awe of what prop will be used next… This is a great way to retell a Gothic classic and Saunders creation of the mad nurse is worth the ticket price alone.
