Spend a night with those masters of the macabre, William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe, and all their nefarious fiends.
Once more upon a midnight dreary, Delaware Shakespeare opens many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore during its autumnal tradition now known as “Shakespeare, Poe & Fiends.” With new selections, new authors and new venues – including the New Castle Court House Museum in Historic New Castle, the Old Town Hall in Wilmington and the Old College Hall in Newark – Delaware Shakespeare actors will usher you into a world of literary spirits and specters for a night of readings from poetry, prose and plays, designed to fright and delight.
The evening lasts approximately one hour. All tickets $18.
