Synopsis

A faithful friend, Ethan Powell, responds to an urgent summons from a childhood acquaintance. He finds himself a solitary guest in the foreboding, inscrutable Usher mansion. A mysterious ailment has possessed Roderick Usher, lord of the manor, which has resisted all medical treatment and threatens to extinguish the line of Usher forever. Yet a darker enigma faces Powell, and the further he probes the more obscure and horrifying seems the truth. Building to its heart-stopping climax this classic tale of the macabre by the great American author Edgar Allan Poe has been faithfully adapted for the stage preserving much of the beloved text in the script. It is sure to delight all Poe fans and to convert the uninitiated.
