We reprise PMRP’s gender-swapped take on the classic Star Trek episode “The Naked Time”, featuring Capt. Jane Kirk, her half-Vulcan science officer Ms. Spock, and the crew of the starship Enterprise, originally performed at the 2017 Arisia science-fiction convention. While investigating a lost research team on a dying planet, Ms. Spock’s landing party discover that the crew of the previous expedition froze to death under bizarre, irrational circumstances. When they return to the Enterprise, they start to behave erratically, and even stoic Ms. Spock has trouble controlling her emotions. Has whatever madness befell the research expedition spread to the crew of the Enterprise?

Come for the intrigue, stay to learn why Ms. Spock’s mother chose to marry a human man!

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.
For Boston’s First Night 2009 festivities, the Post Meridian Radio Players were invited to present radio drama performed the way it was back in the 1930's, 40's & 50's. Actors at microphones, live sound effects artists, and recorded audio effects transported the audience from the cockpit of a heroic Do-Gooder's futuristic spaceship in “Countdown to Chaos” to the panic-stricken streets of a city doomed by science gone wrong in “Chicken Heart”!
