Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe- Nov 17, 18, 20
Nightfall PosterThe Coughin/G.A.R. Players are proud to present the thriller, Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe.

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 at the door.

Show dates are:
Thursday, November 17th at 7pm
Friday, November 18th at 7pm
Sunday, November 20th at 2pm,
(There is NO SHOW Saturday, Nov 19th due to the GAR Semi-Formal)

Venue: G.A.R. Auditorium 250 South Grant Street, W-B

Tickets can be purchased 1 hour prior to show time, day of show only, and are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for students.
