Eddie, a graduate student, and Monty (her professor) are engaged in a taboo affair and obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe. Eddie submits her class paper and related artwork to an academic conference - which would lead to a job she desperately needs to pay off her student loans. She needs a reference letter from Monty, who expects to present his own paper and get tenure. But Monty refuses to write the letter, forbids her to attend the conference, and tries to get her drunk for an afternoon of pleasure.  When they are interrupted by a call on Monty's phone, Eddie discovers his secret - and the audience votes on how she should finish her affair -and the play. Publish or Perish? Tenure evermore? Or quoth the Raven: Nevermore!?
