Two of Edgar Allen Poe’s greatest works come alive on the Hicklin Studio Theatre stage with spine tingling retellings by the narrators themselves in Poe, Times Two. In the first story, The Cask of Amontillado, Ethan Wakefield plays the part of Montresor, a Venetian nobleman who is crossed by the man known as Fortunato. Montresor recounts their macabre interactions to a courtroom that decides whether he is guilty or not.

In The Black Cat, Nathan Broege plays the part of Alfred, a self-proclaimed friend of animals. Trapped in a prison cell and documenting his story via quill and paper he explains his misfortunes with one of his favorite pets: a black cat named Pluto.
