John Kevin Jones will return to Merchant’s House Museum this fall for a limited run of his solo show, Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe. The evening, which takes place in a candlelit parlor set for a funeral, features performances of Poe's stories “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” and “The Raven.”

Performances will run September 24–November 3. Rhonda Dodd directs.

In 1845, celebrated writer Edgar Allan Poe lived on Amity Street (now West 3rd Street), just blocks from the Merchant's House. The address was home to the Tredwell’s, a prosperous merchant-class family, and whose parlor is the setting of Jones' Killing an Evening with Edgar Allan Poe.

Jones is known for his performances of the long-running A Christmas Carol at the Merchant’s House.
