Picture-Perfect Poe: Shuddersome: Tales of Poe

Looking for a way to bring the works of Edgar Allen Poe to life? Shuddersome: Tales of Poe by Lindsay Price is a vivid and theatrical adaptation of some of Poe’s best known works.

The thumping of a heartbeat. The creek of a door. The howl of a bitter wind. The gong of a clock tower. The clang of alarm bells. The sound of beating wings getting closer and closer…

Specters, ghosts and ghouls come alive in this vivid theatrical adaptation of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known works. Included are The Tell-Tale HeartThe Raven, and The Masque of the Red Death.

Poe’s words rise from the page like corpses from the grave. Be careful. Do you hear that tap, tap, tapping?

Multi length versions to fit every performance need.

Sarah Hankins of Clinton High School in Clinton, MS was excited to share the success of her drama students who were nothing short of “Poe perfection”. Not only did they win Best Overall Costume at the North Mississippi DramaFest and the Mississippi Theatre Association, but check out these amazing set pieces!

The clock was a student designed piece that shows the evil eye that appears in the grandfather clock, and the face of the clock that opens for Death to enter through. An amazing set piece!

Great work, Clinton High School!
