Wanted poster with Edgar Allan Poe: "7 Rooms: The Masque of the Red Death"


7 Rooms: The Masque of the Red Death

Flat Earth Theatre seeks to assemble 7 playwrights, 7 directors, podded actors, and staff/crew members with diverse identities, backgrounds, experiences, styles, and creative voices to collaborate on a new works project inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's deliciously macabre short story "The Masque of the Red Death."

  • 7 Playwrights
  • 7 Directors
  • Cohabitating or "Podded" Actors, pairs or trios
  • Sound Designer
  • Costume Designer
  • Stage Manager
  • Assistant Stage Managers
  • Potential for others – don't hesitate to reach out if you're interested!

We are especially seeking artists of color to make our masquerade full of the most varied perspectives we can get into our castellated abbey.

The show will be presented virtually in early July 2021.

About the Project

While a plague devastates the world outside, Prince Prospero's exclusive "end of the world party" provides a hedonistic haven and decadent distraction for its rich and powerful guests. Each playwright/director team will take on one of the seven colorful chambers of Prospero's manor by creating a short (5- to 8-minute) scene that will form part of a larger work once stitched together with the other pieces.
