We’ve done several recreations of classic Golden Age of Radio episodes. These shows — direct re-creations of shows that were originally broadcast in the heyday of radio drama — were PMRP’s mainstay in its early years, and have influenced and inspired many of our later shows with original material (such as the “War of the Worlds” segment in The Big Broadcast of 1938, which was a retelling of some of the events of Orson Welles’ famous broadcast in a new setting, but tried to capture some of the spirit of the original broadcast.

Tomes of Terror: Spirits of Suspense

Congratulations to the cast of PMRP’s Halloween show, Tomes of Terror: Spirits of Suspense, recreating three classics of suspense and horror from the Golden Age of Radio. The show features

  • Suspense’s “Three O’Clock,” based on a story by Cornell Woollrich,
  • Lucille Fletcher’s radioplay “The Furnished Floor,” also from Suspense, and
  • Escape’s adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s short story “The Birds,”.

and you can “Read more” to learn more about the radio plays and see the cast lists.

We hope to see you there! Tickets and reservations should be available by early October, so watch this space!

Tomes of Terror 3

There’s one due date you can never escape! In October 2008 we presented Tomes of Terror 3, featuring our recreations of a Hallowe’en episode of The Baby Snooks Show and “The Tell-Tale Heart” as adapted for Nightfall and “Reynardine”, an original adaptation of Athan Y. Chilton's short story “The Ballad of Reynardine”.
