Students to tackle Poe

Nov 1, 2023 | Arts & Culture


As their fall play, the Rim drama students will present Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe on Nov. 3, 4, 10 and 11.

This play is a retelling of four Poe poems and stories: “The Raven,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Pit and the Pendulum” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.”

“Because Troupe 145 often performs comedies,” said drama teacher S. Nicholas, “the students wanted to take on the challenge of a more serious production. We are excited to be using our new lighting and communication technology.”

The production, she further noted, is student created and student run – from costuming to set design and build to sound, lights and stage managing.

The set represents various drawing rooms, bedrooms and crypts. In the play, Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself – and us – that he is not mad.

Nicholas was pleased to announce they have a new assistant director, Ethan Perkins, “who has been instrumental in helping us accomplish everything these kids dreamed up!”

Shows will take place at 6 p.m. on Nov. 3, 4 and 10 and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 4 and 11. Tickets are available at and at the door.

Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door!
