Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe

By Eric Coble
Directed by Josh Colliluori and Evelyn Rice

d by Patrick Nye


Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself, and us, that he's not mad. The spell he weaves brings us a highly theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best - The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Tell Tale Heart. Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat.

FCT needs volunteers for the following areas:

1. Person who is experienced and interested in writing grants 
2. Fundraising Development Committee Members

 3. Someone who would consider sharing the responsibility of taking posters to the local businesses (60) and hanging them up for each of our shows. This just takes about 3-4 hours and is done about every other month. We have one volunteer so the duty can be split to each of you taking 30 posters around and it should only take you about 2 hours to accomplish this once every other month. 

Please contact us at if you are interested in helping in any of the above areas. Thanks ahead of time!
