Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe lived on Amity Street (now West 3rd Street), just blocks from the Merchant’s House. His publication of The Raven had brought him instant fame and invitations to the city’s most fashionable literary salons. Join John Kevin Jones (A Christmas Carol at the Merchant’s House) as the great master of horror in the Tredwells’ candlelit double parlor for a hauntingly memorable performance of Poe’s thrilling tales, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Raven. It will be a bone-chilling evening of irrational revenge, obsession and premeditated murder, dismemberment, and the very, very dark.

Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe, Murder at the Merchant’s House is presented in association with Summoners Ensemble Theatre and directed by Dr. Rhonda Dodd.

Tickets $18. Seating is strictly limited. All ticket sales are final.
