Thanks for Making Our Production of Edgar a Great Success!

Presented in partnership with
 Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation.


Edgar Allan Poe, born 1809, was the first American writer of note to try and earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. His contributions to American literature include THE RAVEN, THE HOUSE OF USHER, THE TELL-TALE HEART, THE BLACK CAT, and many other tales of mystery and imagination. Today, Poe and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, film and television. The Mystery Writers of America present an annual award, the Edgar, for distinguished work in the mystery genre. Poe died in 1849 in Baltimore; his cause of death unknown but variously believed to be as a result of alcohol, drugs and brain disease.
