Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe

  • Written by Eric Coble
  • Presented by Washington and Eisenstadt
  • Directed by Aaron Washington, Keith Eisenstadt and Lauren Rodriguez

Performance Dates:

  • Saturday, October 29 • 8 pm

This Halloween weekend the creative team of Aaron Washington and Keith Eisenstadt will be providing audiences with a different style of haunting when they present Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe. The show will be a collaboration between directors; Aaron Washington, Keith Eisenstadt and Lauren Rodriguez. To support literature and the arts in local classrooms, producers will be donating a portion of each ticket sold through Performances will be held in The Studio at the Carrollwood Cultural Center, located at 13345 Casey Road.

Edgar Allan Poe is among the most influential of American Poets; with a flair for the dramatic. Poe’s works fit perfectly with the mission of Washington and Eisenstadt; to celebrate literature and the arts and support the education of the same. The drama written by Eric Coble, features four of Poe’s most haunting tales; The Pit and the Pendulum directed by Washington, The Raven and The Tell Tale Heart directed by Eisenstadt, and The Fall of the House of Usher directed by Rodriguez. The pieces are arranged and performed to highlight the dramatic elements of the writing and presented in a way that will give the audience chills. At the beginning of the show, Edgar Allan Poe (played by Paul Berg) stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself, and us, that he’s not mad. Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.

Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe is being produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
