Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

John Kevin Jones, whose annual performance of A Christmas Carol at the Merchant's House Museum has become something of a local tradition, expands into Halloween territory with this solo performance (directed by Rhonda Dodd) of works by 19th-century scare king Edgar Allan Poe. In a funereal, candlelit parlor, Jones shares "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado" and, of course, "The Raven." This 2020 edition of the show is streamed live from the site; Jones follows each performance with a virtual tour of the Merchant's House space, with an emphasis on death and mourning.
