SMTS stages spine-chlling reading

SHERBURNE – The Sherburne Music-Theater Society will bring the works of horror masters Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft to life in its performance of performance of Tales to Chill the Soul on Friday, October 30 at 7 p.m. in the Sherburne Public Library. The reading will feature “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allen Poe and “The Hound,” “From Beyond,” and “The Last Statement of Randolph Carter” by H. P. Lovecraft dramatized by cast members Michael Moren, Keven Simmons, Mike Tefft, and Rick Thormahlen.



These two writers, both of whose works reached far greater acclaim after their death, are considered by many to be the earliest and most influential practitioners of what is now referred to as the horror genre.  Many of Poe’s works are readily recognized by title; stories such as “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Cask of Amontillado” have had various adaptations and retellings over the years, and his narrative poem “The Raven” remains as one of the most recognizable works in American literature.
