ONE MAN POE: A Quadruple-Bill
Written by Edgar Allan Poe
Performed by Stephen Smith

Renowned as the ‘Godfather of Gothic Horror’, Edgar Allan Poe was a pioneer in establishing the horror genre. Although his works are nearly 200 years old, Poe’s stories have stood the test of time and have inspired a countless number of horror writers.

Using Poe’s original text from the 1840s, one actor faithfully brings his words to life on stage, performing four of the most terrifying examples of gothic literature:

Act One: The Tell-Tale Heart and The Pit and the Pendulum

Act Two: The Black Cat and The Raven
