Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself – and us – that he’s not mad. The spell he weaves brings us a highly theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best: “The Raven,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Pit and the Pendulum” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.

This production runs approximately 90 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission. All seating is general admission, allowing patrons to space themselves however they’re most comfortable. Face masks are strongly encouraged, but not required.

When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (Oct. 6-9) and 2 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 10)
