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 where 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 has been faithfully adapted for the stage and is sure to delight all Poe fans and to convert the uninitiated
