Woodbridge to Host “An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe”

Woodbridge to Host “An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe” The NOVA Players of the Woodbridge Campus will host the theatrical production of “An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe,” at the Black Box Theatre. Show dates are October 26 to 28 and November 2 to 5 at 7:00 p.m., with matinees October 26 at 10:00 a.m. and November 5 at 3:00 p.m.

“An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe” by Robert Mason and “Poe Connectives” is based on the works of Edgar Allen Poe with additional material included by David Tyson, Woodbridge communication studies and theatre arts assistant professor.

“Edgar Allen Poe is the master of the macabre, but he’s also the father of the detective story genre, and an accomplished poet,” said Tyson. “Poe’s genius lies in his ability to capture the pain, despair, loneliness and transform it into a thrilling journey of self-discovery. This production looks at a number of his short stories and poems and dramatizes them for the stage, as we seek to discover the author and our darker selves.”

Tickets are $8 for general admission (including NOVA faculty and staff), $6 for all students (including NOVA students) and children 18 years old and younger, senior citizens and military. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Only cash will be accepted upon entry.

Open parking for the event will be available in Lot B. For additional information, contact Tyson at dtyson@nvcc.edu.
