Why Will You Say that I am Mad?

A Fred Theatre Production

Join us for a journey through the dark landscape of Edgar Allan Poe – the man, his life and his works. 

Featuring readings from the acknowledged master of American Gothic, including The Raven and The Tell-Tale Heart, the evening will delight and surprise in equal measure, both old and new fans. 

Mad genius? Tormented artist? 

The man himself joins our cast of readers to set his story right. Poe tells us just how maligned he was in the Griswold ‘memoir’ and sets out his own version of his life. 

Prepare to rethink what you think you know about Poe.
