Write Out Loud, an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud for a live audience presents the Second Annual San Diego PoeFest, running from Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 27 at the historic Adobe Chapel in Old Town, located at 3963 Conde Street in San Diego.

PoeFest will include staged performances of works by Edgar Allan Poe and other authors of the phantasmic. Travis Rhett Wilson and Walter Ritter return this year with fresh performances and Jason D. Rennie, Jane Longenecker and Paul Maley reprise The Pit and the Pendulum, Berenice and The Little Frenchman from last year’s PoeFest, in case you missed them. New cast this year includes David Phillip Fishman, Eric Minella and Jane Jacobs. Tickets are $20 for each program. An $80 Festival Pass provides a ticket for each of the six programs.

Write Out Loud Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy, shared “ We were thrilled that our inaugural PoeFest had many sold out houses. We are excited to bring new faces and different wonderfully dark and engaging stories of Edgar Allan Poe and others to such an enthusiastic audience. Performing by candlelight in the unique and historic Adobe Chapel in Old Town adds a wonderful atmosphere to these classic pieces.

PoeFest is produced by Write Out Loud in partnership with Save Our Heritage Organisation. For more information, visit www.writeoutloudsd.com.
