THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE ALBATROSS – PLAY BASED ON A STORY BY EDGAR ALLAN POE

In this play based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, the Voyage of the Albatross follows the fateful voyage of a ship hit by a storm so severe that it almost seems supernatural. When only three people survive the storm, they believe that their troubles are over. But the ship was never destined to have any survivors…

Desperate for someone to hear what happened to them, Sara, one of the survivors writes a message and places it in a bottle, casting it overboard before she meets her destiny. She can only hope that it will be found by someone and her story told.
