A journey through the dark and twisted world of Edgar Allan Poe


Written and Directed by Derek Berlin

Starring Derek Berlin 


Almost a week before his death Edgar Allan Poe was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious and incoherent. An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe takes us inside Poe's dream state, sharing the writer's life story. From Purgatory, Poe spins his last haunting ghosts of thought: a personal tale of pain, sorrow, and the desire for his soul's redemption. Rediscover Poe's gothic and macabre glory in this one-man show starring Derek Berlin.
