A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater
This is a drama of the life and times of Edgar Allan Poe - from his earliest years as the son of a somewhat famous Bostonian actress to his brief rise to fame as a poet and a writer of tales of horror and loss to his tragic love affair with his 13-year old cousin to his mysterious and brutal end. All this is played out against a background of pre-Civil War 19th century America, a volatile time of ambition, struggle and self-invention.
