A Pandemonium of Poe

On Saturday we were back at Speke Hall to enjoy another performance by Don't Go into the Cellar. This time we were regaled with an evening of stories by Edgar Allan Poe. Our last visit was on a cold evening in November, so on this visit we were delighted to see signs of Spring all around us in the grounds of Speke Hall.

However, once we were sat in the Great Hall, all was darkness and terror. A Pandemonium of Poe is a selection of macabre and spine tingling tales by the master of the gothic horror and ghost story. The tales were told expertly by Jonathan Goodwin.

We listened to The Fall of the House of Usher, The Masque of the Red Death and Mesmeric Revelation. All the tales were excellent and the audience loved every minute of the performance. 

A thoroughly enjoyable evening exploring the darker reaches of the human psyche, with thrills and chills galore.
