Catalyst Theatre

subject to availability
 sold out

A musical fable for adults.

A delightfully grotesque musical tale fusing the hauntingly humorous myths of Edgar Allan Poe with a chilling score, that appeals to the darker side within us all…

Showcasing the Gothic dreamscape of Poe’s life, this whimsical production is at once playful and perverse, brutal and heartfelt, beautiful and enthralling.

Characterised by its striking visuals, heightened physical performances, evocative text and sinister music, Nevermore is homage to an iconic misfit whose work has developed a cult following.
