The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe

“Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” –Edgar Allan Poe

The short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe come alive at Coggeshall Farm, as told by the characters who have just witnessed them occur. At six different locations throughout the museum, tales of horror, revenge, obsession, and deception will be repeated in pulsating rhythm…like the beat of a heart.

Written & directed by PJ Griffith for Coggeshall Farm & Old Sturbridge Village

Clues & Candy

Patrick Hamilton (William)

Patrick is a writer, actor, and photographer who lives in New York City. Four of his plays have reached the stage and he is currently working on his first feature. His latest play, The Box- which he is also directing- will debut in New York City in December. Since he was little, he has loved Edgar Allan Poe’s work so he is absolutely thrilled to be working on this project.

Alexis Aker (Psyche)

Alexis hails from the warm state of Florida and is a graduate of the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. Favorite credits include Mame, Guys and Dolls (Light Opera Works), Amber in Hairspray, Mary-Jane in Big River (Timber Lake Playhouse), Spamalot, Beauty and the Beast (Brightside Theatre).


Nolan Donato (Tristan)

Nolan is very excited to be a part of this show. He currently studies theatre at Providence College. Over the past three years, he has played Nigel in Something Rotten, Jack in Newsies, and Thomas Gray in Nat Turner in Jerusalem. This is Nolan’s first professional production, and he is very grateful to be working on this project.


Magner Peruto (Evangeline)

Magner fell in love with the stage early on and has performed in community, regional and professional theaters. Favorite roles have been Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Hattie in Laundry and Bourbon, Cleante in Tartuffe and Felicity in The Shadow Box. Raised by city folk she came to adore nature much further along in life. After a hiatus from acting, she returns to the boards (er, um, the dirt) with an almost fiendish desire to frighten and delight the audience with her craft.

P.J. Griffith (Writer and Director)

P.J. Griffith is a writer/director/performer based out of New York City with an extensive background in theater, television and museum programming, working on both sides of the proverbial camera. As the Artistic Director of Clockjack Productions, he has focused on the creation of innovative, site-specific, immersive theatrical experiences.
