Nevermore: Tales of Edgar Allan Poe

By Edgar Allan Poe
Adapted by Chris Iannacone and John Johnston

Directed by John Johnston

October 6 – October 17, 2021

The Classical Theatre Company will return to live in-person performances with a play comprised of tales written by the master of suspense and horror himself, Edgar Allan Poe. The performance will include Poe’s short stories and poem: The Fall of the House of Usher, The Tell-Tale Heart, William Wilson, and The Raven.

“We were excited to come back to live performances in October, and that month provides us with a certain ‘spooky’ opportunity,” says director and co-adaptor John Johnston. “We produced an evening of readings of Poe tales a few years back and it was well received. The chance to bring a full production of these horror short stories will be a real treat for our audiences this Halloween season.”

Directed by CTC Executive Artistic Director, John Johnston, who most recently co-directed last year’s award-winning production of Peer Gynt, and appeared on CTC’s stage when he
reprised the role of Sherlock Holmes in The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

All performances will be at
The DeLuxe Theater
3303 Lyons Avenue
