Travel to the darkest corners inside Edgar Allan Poe’s mind, as four of his favorite tales are blended together to create a chilling excursion. Fall under the spell of “The Raven,” “The Fall of House of Usher,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and the “Tell-Tale Heart.” These familiar stories and poems are brought to life in a theatrical adaptation that will make your skin crawl, leave you frozen in fear, and questioning his madness. Perhaps you should check your heartbeat at the door.
