One-Offs

These are shows which don’t fit (or don’t fit neatly) into one of our established series. Often, they are longer-form radio dramas such as 2016’s Alice in Wonderland. Sometimes, they bend the mold of an existing series somewhat; for instance, our 2015 Hallowe’en show, Monster in the Mirror differed from our Tomes of Terror format in having two segments with a shared theme rather than three unrelated stories.

Monster in the Mirror

Our 2015 Hallowe’en show, Monster in the Mirror, brought together two original adaptations of classic tales of terror on the topic of the horrors we may keep submerged within us—and the dreadful cost when they come out. The show featured “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Miss Hyde” as adapted by Tegan Kehoe and directed by Jess Viator and “The Frankenstein Murders”, adapted by Michael McAfee and directed by Liz Salazar.

Doctor Who: The Starship of Madness

Suffering Shuggoths! The Roaring Twenties have just begun! Flappers! Gin joints! Deep Ones? A newly-regenerated Doctor joins forces with a struggling, nightmare-plagued writer by the name of Lovecraft to investigate attacks in Boston by monstrous creatures. Who is this eccentric Professor Whiteman who appears to be behind it all? What is the secret of the Professor's amazing chair that can seemingly cure the insane? What truly goes on inside the Miskatonic Gentlemen's Club? What will happen to the world, and every living being on it, when C'thulhu rises? Our performance at the 2011 Arisia science-fiction convention, which we then reprised in March 2011, was a mashup of Doctor Who and H. P. Lovecraft.

Chicken Hearts & Other Parts

In October 2005, we re-created Arch Oboler's lost Lights Out! episode “Chicken Heart” as part of Chicken Hearts and Other Parts, a Hallowe’en-themed fundraiser for local filmmaker Chelsea Spear. In addition to “Chicken Heart”, the performance featured “The Atlantis Affair”, “Erasure”, and Improv PoetryProse by nationally-recognized voice artist Lindsay Ellison, and “The Unhappy Medium”, a segment from Spear’s project The Ballad of Burd Janet, a tretelling of the Celtic folktale Tam Lin.
