- Charleston-North Charleston, SC (1888PressRelease) June 07, 2011 - "Israfel: The Ordeal of Edgar Allan Poe," a new one-act drama about Poe's struggles in life and art by John MacNicholas, will have its first public exhibition at Piccolo Spoleto Saturday, June 4 at 2 p.m. at the Footlight Players Theatre, 20 Queen Street in downtown Charleston. Tickets are $16. Profits from the play will be donated to the Charleston Clemente Course, a free college-level course in the humanities for impoverished, homeless and otherwise disadvantaged people in the Charleston area.
After the rehearsed staged reading of "Israfel: The Ordeal of Edgar Allan Poe," Poe scholars Scott Peeples and Jim Hutchisson will join MacNicholas for a panel discussion of Poe's life and wide-ranging literary influence. This program is part of the Southern Artists Celebratory Series (SACS), which highlights one Southern artist each year.
The Charleston Clemente Course at Trident Technical College is the first Clemente course in South Carolina. It is based on the Clemente Course in the Humanities developed by author and educator Earl Shorris in 1995. Shorris developed the course on the premise that studying great works of art, literature, history and philosophy can spur reflective thinking and give people the tools to gain control of their lives.
