About This Show

Inspired by two stories from Edgar Allan Poe, A Scythe of Time takes us to London, 1881, where the public can’t get enough of the infamously sensational Blackwood Articles, in which writers take their own lives and, in the process of dying, record their experience with death. On the other side of town, our heroine Signore Zenobia embarks on a quest to unravel the mystery of the articles in an effort to save her own magazine, and finds time pressing down on her as she composes a Blackwood Article of her very own. A bizarre tale of power and love, poetic justice and bloody revenge, A Scythe of Time shows us just how far one goes for fame and recognition in an absurd world.
