Todays “Steampunk” cultural aesthetic draws from the parallel social angst of early industrializing 19th Century’s ‘awe struck’ impact of the overwhelming power of stream-driven technologies, and 21st Century overwhelming digital-internet revolution impacting us today.

You’ll travel thousands of years into the past and marvel at long-lost advancements in science, technology and architecture, thanks to Allamistakeo: He’s an ancient Egyptian nobleman who has been happily living his very long life – that is, until he meets a trio of eager Victorian scientists determined to dissect him! That’s the premise of Some Words with a Mummy, the featured ensemble piece in this humor-laced evening of dramatic readings by professional costumed actors, enhanced with an original sound score. The program also includes “The City in the Sea,” “To Helen” and other poems, plus a dramatization of The Thousand-and-Second Tale of Scheherazade, Poe’s amusingly dark fantasy involving that glib Queen from the Arabian Nights (who dreamt up Sinbad, Aladdin, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, etc.), imagining what happens when she becomes overconfident and presses her luck just one night too far.
