An Edinburgh Fringe Preview show:

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.

To commemorate the 175th anniversary of his Poe’s mysterious death, and using his original text from the 1840s, one actor faithfully brings his words to life, performing four of the most thrilling examples of gothic literature:

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

Act Two: The Black Cat and The Raven

★★★★★ “Powerfully moving” – Everything Theatre

★★★★ “Will have your imagination running wild” – The Reviews Hub

★★★★ “Four Poe stories on the trot… this is nothing but a macabre-athon” – LondonTheatre1

Suitable for ages 12+
