Fancy Me Mad - Theatrical Performance

Set within a Baltimore, Maryland apartment circa 2009, Fancy Me Mad is Morris-Jumel Mansion’s newest theatrical production. Audiences will witness the story of a young man, who upon the death of his Grandmother, arrives at her apartment and discovers her secret infatuation with the author Edgar Allen Poe. In reading his Grandmother’s secret journal he evokes the spirits embodying Poe’s works. Fancy Me Mad highlights the love, loss and mystery of a man whose life is so often hauntingly reflected in his work.

Performances run between October 20 and November 5 on Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm.

Admission is $30 per person, $20 for members, seniors, and students with a same day student rush of $10 (limited to 10 tickets per show). A reception will follow each performance.
