East Lynne Theater Company's Equity professional actors read their favorite Poe stories, just in time for Halloween. Enjoy tasty treats and cider in the lounge before the show.
Edgar Allan Poe (1809 -1849) – the name alone conjures up mysteries, murder, madmen, and mayhem. He is considered the creator of the modern detective story, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle credits him with influencing his own Sherlock Holmes creation. His works, in print since 1827, include poetry, stories, a novel, essays, and book reviews. His idol was Lord Byron, and by age thirteen, Poe had written enough poetry to publish a book. His teacher and guardian prevented such a publication.
This has become a very popular event that quickly sells out!
