The Apothecary Salon: Readings By Riff Raff, For Riff Raff…
…with a tinge of decadence, perfect for your Sunday Slumming!
Hear renowned Storyteller, Dubhna Rhiadra, plus Mickey Westminster & friends, read Early Romantic Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s unfinished gothic narrative poem “Cristabel.”
Come claim a few stanzas yourself, while we sit around smoking opium, drinking Absinthe and asking, “What in the World is Christabel doing wandering around the castle grounds alone in the middle of the night!” And, “Who the heck brings a stranger from the forest home to meet Daddy?”
Hear Belle read a short excerpt, “The Pharmacological Muse,” from the Introduction to Thomas de Quincy’s Confessions of an English Opium-Eater.
We hope we are tempting you!
