Jeffrey Combs is no stranger to Edgar Allan Poe, having played the master of literary horrors in the stage play Nevermore, and up next he’s reprising the role in… an “audiobiography”!
Combs leads an all-star horror voice cast in the 10-hour audio drama of the life, times and mysterious death of American writer Edgar Allan Poe.
Alone: The Life of Poe is a 20-chapter, 10-hour audio drama written, directed and produced by Mark Redfield. Jennifer Rouse is the composer and Sound Designer. The project is currently raising initial production funds via IndieGoGo, and goes into production in Spring 2019.
The audiobiography is expected to go on sale as a ten-disc CD Box set, and on iTunes and Audible on Poe’s birthday, in January 2020.
The Life of Poe chronicles the tragic life of one of America’s favorite and most influential writers, from his birth in Boston in 1809 to traveling actors, to his mysterious death in Baltimore in 1849.
In addition to Jeffrey Combs voicing Poe, Alone: The Life of Poe will also star Lana Wood (as Maria Clemm), Mackenzie Menter (as Virginia), with Paul Day Clemens, Brinke Stevens, Debbie Rochon, and many others voicing a character list of 200 roles.
