A tap at a chamber door, and the beat of a hideous heart evoke the very best and creepiest of Edgar Allan Poe. So when Poe sets out to keep his stories alive from beyond the grave, an otherworldly radio studio proves just the thing. Wandering spirits gather to play the roles in Poe's most classic works, from The Cask of the Amontillado to The Fall of the House of Usher. But the grim master of the macabre is a little new to radio. What's all this about commercials? And why is a skeptical cemetery cat sticking around for all these stories? Draw the audience's imagination into the delicious gothic atmosphere with this flexible piece for audio or onstage performance.
