Sangamon Auditorium

Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself '' and us '' that he's not mad. From his troubled mind spring three brilliant tales that Poe himself considered among his best: The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher and The Tell-Tale Heart. Adapted by award-winning playwright Eric Coble, Nightfall captures both the poetry and the spine-chilling terror of Poe's originals. This performance is a haunting and highly theatrical staging of the work of one of America's greatest authors and a true master of the macabre.
