2017 Theme, Stories & Poems

In this, the year of our Lord 1848, we here at Mount Hope Penitentiary are proud to be at the very forefront of the modern wave of prison reform and criminal rehabilitation. We pride ourselves on taking the worst, most horribly depraved felons of our age, and through a number of revolutionary techniques, reconditioning them to be mild, submissive, truly penitent individuals. For a very limited time, Mrs. Evangeline Mallard, President of the Prison Board of Inspectors, invites you to join us at Mount Hope for a demonstration of rehabilitation through the beauty of poetry! And we are especially pleased to be joined – at least until his court date – by the very famous Mr. Edgar Allan Poe! So witness the power of true criminal reclamation here at Mount Hope Penitentiary! And remember: for the worst of sinners, there’s always Hope.

Join the characters of some of Poe's most famous tales as they stroll about the historic Mount Hope Mansion. Dine within the decorated rooms of the haunted Mansion, and enjoy live performances of your favorite Edgar Allan Poe tales! Performances run Thursdays through Sundays, November 2—12, 2017 and are each roughly three hours in length.
