The lives of Edgar Allen Poe and the Edwardian actor portraying him become disturbingly entwined in this compelling psychological melodrama.

Famed Edwardian actor Vincent Griswold prepares to perform as Edgar Allan Poe in a stage-play based on the author's life. But Griswold's obsession with the dead writer threatens his own sanity and the lives of those around him.

Jonathan Goodwin performs in a show written by Goodwin, and directed by Gary Archer.

This performance will take place at the Coffin Works, in one of its heritage spaces. It's advisable to wear coats as rooms can be chilly. No food or drink allowed.

Early bird tickets are £10 each and are available now until 13th September 2019. After 13th September prices are: Adults – £15, Children over 12/Students – £12
