In this absurd comedy, Edgar Allan Poe washes ashore on a deserted island with an unknown and dim-witted contemporary, Cornelius Mathews. Poe tackles the 8 stages of grief as his sanity wanes and he traverses his tenuous bond with this loveable oaf. Poe faces his eminent doom in this unexpected tale of friendship and disaster, an adventure full of physical comedy, literary whimsy, and sly wit.
