Killing An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe will be performed by John Kevin Jones, seen previously over the past 5 years in A Christmas Carol at the Merchant's House. His Christmas Carol collaborator, director Rhonda Dodd, also helms Killing An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe.
Killing An Evening With Edgar AllEn Poe is an Actors' Equity Association approved Showcase.

In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe lived on Amity Street (now W. 3rd Street) just blocks from the Merchant's House. 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 master of horror in the Tredwells' candlelit double parlor for 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.
