Absurd clown featuring Edgar Allan Poe and a Misadventure.

When famed author, Edgar Allen Poe (Emily Windler), washes ashore on a deserted island with the bungling fool, Cornelius Mathews (Brian Kuwabara), hilarity ensues. Poe undergoes the 8 stages of grief as his sanity wanes. An absurd clown show filled with slapstick comedy, sly wit, charm, and 80’s hits. It’s “Laurel and Hardy Waiting for Godot” (Kings River Life).

Poe and Mathews originated as an existential adaptation of Herman Melville's "Bartleby, the Scrivner." We found the factual relationship between Poe and Mathews to be inspirational and hilarious, so we developed a new show! We heightened these characters to create a re-imagined clown duo out of these historic figures.

Grumble Productions is a physical theater ensemble that was founded by two Dell’Arte International graduates in Los Angeles in 2012. We love the art of Comedy. We love using the Unexpected. We love stories that touch people…in their hearts. We seek to create original theater that uses a collection of styles, from Mask, Physical Comedy, Opera, Puppetry, to the Weird that has yet to be dreamed of. We strive to present theater that is accessible to everyone in our community. We want the audience to laugh or cry from the bottom of their gut. We want the audience to experience the power of imagination and the golden age of comedy here and now!
