“Amok Time” Reprise

On August 25th, the Post-Meridian Radio Players will reprise the Gender-Swapped Star Trek: episode we performed at the Arisia science-fiction convention in January, “Amok Time”! Ms. Spock experiences pon farr, a potentially fatal condition in which female Vulcans lose the logic and self-control that normally guides them and become driven to find a mate. To save the life of her friend, Captain Jane Kirk takes the Enterprise to Vulcan so that Ms. Spock can marry her betrothed T’Pring, but the Captain may pay an unexpected price.

Performance Dates

Both performances will be at Boston Brunch Church (formerly Responsible Grace, just off of College Ave near Davis Square)!

The Naked Time reprise

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?

Journey to Babel reprise

We reprise PMRP’s gender-swapped take on the classic Star Trek episode “Journey to Babel”, featuring Capt. Jane Kirk, her half-Vulcan science officer Ms. Spock, and the crew of the starship Enterprise, originally performed at the 2014 Arisia science-fiction convention. Come for the intrigue, stay to learn why Ms. Spock’s mother chose to marry a human man!

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.

First Night 2009

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”!

Arisia ’13: The Day the Earth Stood Still

Gort, Klaatu Barada Nikto! From the long-running Lux Radio Theater comes this adaptation of the classic 1951 science-fiction film. Originally airing on January 4th, 1954, this production featured Michael Rennie reprising his performance of Klaatu. Lux Radio Theater was famous for producing radio adaptations of major motion pictures, often with the original lead actors.

This adaptation of Edmund H. North's original film script was written by Milton Geiger. The film script itself was based on the Harry Bates short story “Farewell to the Master”.
