Under the overall artistic direction of andy McQuade, he and five other directors present specially commissioned treatments of five Poe's stories rethought for today, plus his best known poem the Raven incorporated in the framing device of a preacher who introduces the evening and guides the audience through the promenade performance. they have not simply transposed the stories to a modern setting, these are not literal transpositions but rethinking in the spirit of what is behind Poe's plots.
