That moment when your life flashes before your eyes. Therein lies the premise of Mister E of Imagination; for at its heart, it is a memory play. You will live inside his brain, exploring significant people and moments of his life through his own stories, until his final breath. It is integral to the staging that the actors play multiple parts, shifting from story to poem to story throughout the play. Intertwining many theatrical conventions within the staging help visualise Poe's struggle with understanding the fine line between reality and imagination.
