On Saturday 21 October a small group of SHU Performance students will present a performed reading of a new version of The Mystery of Marie Roget by Edgar Allen Poe especially for the Off The Shelf Festival. This 45 minute version of the text, entitled Marie Roget, has been adapted by UK/Australian performance company Doppelgangster as part of a Research and Development project.

The performance begins at 1pm and the audience may come and go as they please. For more information please visit the Off The Shelf Festival website.
