The Post-Meridian Radio Players are proud to announce our Spring show, “Lest We Forget.” We’ll feature three stories of fighting injustice and standing up for what’s right!

We’ll reproduce two episodes of the classic 1940s radio series Lest We Forget: The American Dream, “Hey Cabbie” and “Blow That Whistle”, adapted by Liz Salazar and directed by Jay Sekora. In addition we’ll have an original adaptation of the World War II-era comic book action heroes The War Nurse and Her Commandos in “Double Deception”. “Double Deception” is written by Chris Chiampa and directed by Amy Bennett-Zendzian.

Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular ’13

Our second Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular in 2013 was a two-parter. In Red Shift, “Crisis of the Cuddlykins”, Red and the intrepid crew of the Recalcitrant find themselves embroiled in a civil war for merchandise rights and are forced to side with either the ghastly, disgusting, nine-foot-tall shambling insects, or the bad guys. And in our original adaptation of the Atomic-age monster thriller THEM!, radiation from nuclear testing has turned ants into giant monsters that threaten the civilization that created them.

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.
