Classics That go Bump in the Night
Parson’s Nose Theater presents Classics that Go Bump in the Night. American classic authors at their spooky, autumnal best, Edgar Allan Poe takes you to a bone-filled wine cellar far below Venetian streets in The Cask of Amontillado. Stephen Vincent Benet pitches America’s greatest lawyer against the Prince of Darkness for a New Englander’s soul in The Devil and Daniel Webster, and a sunny American town shows a much, much darker side in Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery.
