Twisted Tales of Poe

By Philip Grecian, from the stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe

Directed by Richard Roland

Based on four works by Edgar Allan Poe, the prisoners of Leverett Street Jail, Death Warrant Division, await their fates as the doomed tell their stories. A man brought to justice in “The Black Cat”; a sampling of “The Cask of Amontillado;” what “The Tell-Tale Heart” could reveal; and a soul visited by guilt in “The Raven.” These chilling stories converge into an evening’s sampling of Poe, one of America’s most enduring and misunderstood literary giants. In partnership with WFIU and the Lilly Library, this July broadcast will also feature conversations and materials from IU’s Lilly Library Edgar Allan Poe collection.

Running Time: This piece is presented in partnership with 103.7 WFIU and is presented with no intermission
