Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe: Murder at the Merchant's House
In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe lived just blocks from the Merchant’s House, on Amity Street (now West 3rd Street). Publication of The Raven that year brought him instant fame and invitations to the city’s most fashionable literary salons.
John Kevin Jones (A Christmas Carol at the Merchant’s House) portrays the great master of horror in the Tredwells’ candlelit double parlor in 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.
Venue: Merchant's House Museum
