CLASSIC/SATIRE COLLECTION. Surprise and delight your audience with an evening of humorous tales by Edgar Allan Poe. Though Poe is best known for his horror stories, he also wrote several entertaining, lighthearted tales that are celebrated for their quick wit. In “Some Words With a Mummy,” a group of scientists unwrap a mummy and bring him back to life only to find out that not only is the mummy completely unimpressed with the politics, architecture, and fashions of modern life, he is surprised and mortified at the Moderns’ gross misunderstandings of ancient Egyptian culture. In “Three Sundays in a Week,” a young couple must solve a riddle put forth by their stern aunt before they can get married. And in “Lionizing,” Thomas falls in love with his own nose and sets forth to learn all he can on the subject of Nosology. As his nose’s reputation grows, it becomes an object of admiration for royals, academics, and artists, but when Thomas shoots off Baron Bluddennuff’s nose in a duel, Thomas’s fame quickly turns to infamy as the Fum-Fudge residents turn on him. For Edgar Allan Poe horror tales, check out our collection entitled “The Tell-Tale Heart,” which includes “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Raven,” and “The Black Cat.”
