Announcing the 7 Rooms of
The Masque of the Red Death

This Summer, Flat Earth Theatre presents a radically collaborative virtual theatre experience in 7 Rooms: The Masque of the Red Death. We've united seven local playwrights and seven local directors to construct seven new short plays to fill the unique rooms of the famous manor from Edgar Allan Poe's deliciously macabre short story. Within Prospero's manor where masked revellers escape the plague that devastates the world outside, these assembled works create an evening of theatre that explores isolation, connection, moral dilemmas, humor, and humanity during the time of plague.

The Earthlings extend our gratitude to all the artists who submitted pitches for the project. It was a truly inspiring pool of talent, with enough creative ideas to perform this project many times over! Out of the 62 playwrights and directors who applied, we would like to introduce the seven teams who are building the rooms in Prospero's manor:

The Blue Room

Cliff Odle
Playwright
Johnny Nichols, Jr.
Director

The Purple Room

MJ Halberstadt
Playwright
Lee Mikeska Gardner
Director

The Green Room

Michael Lin
Playwright
David R. Gammons
Director

The Orange Room

Hortense Gerardo

Jessica Ernst

The Violet Room

Sari Boren

Shira Helena Gitlin
Director

The White Room

Kelly Smith

Elizabeth Yvette Ramirez
Director

The Black & Red Room

Gabriel Graetz
Playwright
LaToya T. Robinson
Director

Architects of the House

The show would not be complete without the frame story of Prospero's manor tying the house together and keeping all the individual rooms wildly unique but still cohesive. Overseeing the halls of the castellated abbey are:

A. Lehrmitt
Showrunner
Lindsay Eagle
Artistic Director

7 Rooms: The Masque of the Red Death will be presented virtually in July 2021. Exact dates and times to be announced.
