Nevermore - The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe
'€œBelieve nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.'€ '€“Edgar Allan Poe
The short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe come alive outside the buildings of Old Sturbridge Village, as told by the characters who have just witnessed them occur. At six different locations throughout the Village, tales of horror, revenge, obsession, and deception will be repeated in pulsating rhythm'€¦like a beating heart.
Written & directed by PJ Griffith for Old Sturbridge Village & Coggeshall Farm
