Closed for 2019 - but look for new stories in 2020!
In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe lived on Amity Street (now W. 3rd St) just blocks from the Merchant's House. His publication of The Raven had brought him instant fame and invitations to the city's most fashionable literary salons. Join John Kevin Jones (A Christmas Carol at the Merchant's House) as the great master of terror in the Tredwell's candlelit double parlor for a hauntingly memorable performance of Poe's thrilling tales, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Raven. It will be a bone-chilling evening of irrational revenge, obsession and premeditated murder, dismemberment, and the very, very dark.
Killing An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe, Murder at the Merchant's House is presented by Summoners Ensemble Theatre and directed by Dr. Rhonda Dodd (A Christmas Carol at the Merchant's House). Performances take place in the landmark 1832 Merchant's House Museum, New York City's only 19th century family home preserved intact, inside and out.
