In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe lived on Amity Street (now West 3rd Street) just blocks from the Merchant's House. That year 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 American master of horror for a haunting performance of Poe's thrilling tales, "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado," and "The Raven." The candle lit parlor will be set for a funeral, complete with coffin and draped mirrors. A bone-chilling evening of irrational revenge, obsession, premeditated murder, dismemberment, and the very, very dark awaits.
