Live Reading of Edgar Allan Poe with Scott Cox
"A Chilling Afternoon with Edgar Allen Poe"
Riverwood Vineyard Tobacco Barn
$16.99 per person
Squirm in your seats as our friend and outstanding local actor Scott Cox, Chair of the Benedictine College Theater and Dance Department, presents a selection of short stories and poetry by the Master of the Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. Long regarded as the originator of the horror story, the inspiration for the modern detective novel, and the architect of the short story, Poe's vivid imagery, haunting prose, and bizarre mind still shock, titillate, and delight readers to this day. As you enjoy the warmth of a delicious glass or bottle of wine, and the ambiance of the tobacco barn in the autumnal air, let Poe's words send a chill down your spine. There will be favorites like "The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart" but also a few lesser-known works to surprise, entertain, and unsettle you.
Tickets are nonrefundable but can be transferred to someone else. Tickets will not be shipped.
