One Man Poe

One Man Poe

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.

Using Poe’s original text from the 1840s, one actor faithfully brings his words to life on stage,
performing four of the most terrifying examples of gothic literature:

Act One: The Tell-Tale Heart and The Pit and the Pendulum
Act Two: The Black Cat and The Raven

Performed and Directed by Stephen Smith.

★★★★ "Four Poe stories on the trot. This is nothing if not a macabrathon..." - LondonTheatre1
★★★★ "The combination of Poe and Smith will have your imagination running wild" - The Reviews Hub
