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.
