by Edgar Allen Poe

Adapted For The Stage by D. Chapelle

Play Synopsis 

One of Edgar Allen Poe's most famous short stories. It is told by a servant who endeavours to convince the reader of her sanity, while describing a murder she committed. Poe has given us one of the most powerful examples of the capacity of the human mind to deceive itself and then to speculate on the nature of its own destruction.
