It is 1849, two years after the death of his wife Virginia, and Edgar Allan Poe is haunted — not just by the spectre of his beloved, but also by his own macabre mysteries. During the course of THE MADNESS OF EDGAR ALLAN POE: A LOVE STORY, Virginia and Edgar guide the audience from room to room through Oak Park’s historic Cheney Mansion, taking them from the garrets to the dungeons…and deep into a tortured mind, teetering on the brink of sanity. Come and experience favorites like “The Pit and the Pendulum”, “The Tell-Tale Heart“and “The Masque of the Red Death” as you’ve never heard or seen them before.
