Sean O’Brien: The Portable Poe                                                                                                              Hits : 250
Sunday, November 25, 2018, 01:00pm - 03:00pm


Popular demand has summoned Edgar Allen Poe's ghost from its Baltimore grave, and local actor Sean O'Brien will channel the tormented spectre. Like chills? O'Brien's "Portable Poe" will trickle ice down your spine. Word on the street promises a stunning and haunted portrayal. Those reluctant to subject themselves to voluntary shivers can perhaps find surcease in Reason Center's library with a flip-through of cartoon books. But we don't promise. This, after all, is Poe.

It is also Sean O’Brien. Sean began his work on the stage in rural Connecticut when he was but 14, and has acted, directed and taught theater in New York, Virginia, Montana and California. Since retirement from teaching, he has performed for fun in schools and venues around the Sacramento area, including California Freethought Day and the Davis Shakespeare Festival. His growing production company, Every Corner Productions, recently expanded its repertoire to include a new show, “Bob: The Words of Col. Robert Green Ingersoll." Currently Sean is developing two more one-man shows, William Shakespeare and Mark Twain, for presentation in the schools. He is a busy man!
