Edinburgh Horror Festival
Gothic horror stories from the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. This includes The Telltale Heart, Poe's dark and brooding tale of one person's descent into madness as one night they murder an old man in his bed, driven mad by the old man's eye, and finally driven to full blown insanity by the beating of his disembodied heart. For The Raven, his most famous poem, our narrator sits in his chambers, dark and late, storms crashing and lightning flashing as he laments his lost love - the pinnacle of gothic poetry. Plus, a collection other tales from the spirits of the dead…
Ages 14 and over.
Tickets: £8, book at: www.edhorrorfest.co.uk
Additional Dates: 14 August 2021, 21 August 2021
