Night Falls over Kew
Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself — and us — that he’s not mad.
Q2 Players bring us ‘Nightfall With Edgar Allan Poe’, a theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best: ‘The Raven’, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’, ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’, and ‘The Tell-Tale Heart.’
Enter the world of Poe…if you dare.
