Tomes of Terror

Generally an anthology of several terrifying tales, our Tomes of Terror performances happen around Hallowe’en. (Not all our Hallowe’en shows have been Tomes of Terror performances, though.)

Tomes of Terror: Spirits of Suspense

Auditions: August 29th and 30th, 2022.
Callbacks, if needed, will be Thursday, September 1.
Performances: October 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29.
(8pm performances on all nights, plus a 2pm matinée on Saturday, October 22. Thursday the 27th is “Pay-what-you-can night.” There will be a costume contest on Saturday the 29th.)

PMRP is proud to present three tales of Suspense and Terror, resurrected from the airwaves of the long dead past.

First will be the dread countdown of Suspense’s “Three O’Clock,” based on the original short story by Cornell Woollrich. Join us as a murderer’s plot goes horribly awry while he is forced to watch… and wait.

Tomes of Terror: Beyond Grimm

Performances: October 25th, 26th, and 31st and November 1st and 2d at 8:00pm,
with an additional matinée on Saturday, October 26th, at 2:00pm.
Location: Boston Brunch Church (formerly Responsible Grace), 204 Elm Street, Somerville.
Tickets and reservations are available on our Tickets page.
Content note: In addition to the usual horrors of a Halloween show, please note that “The Myling” depicts the aftermath of a young child's death (not portrayed).

This Halloween the Post-Meridian Radio Players are proud to present Tomes of Terror: Beyond Grimm! Join us for original adaptations of four creepy tales from around the globe! We will be presenting:

Tomes of Terror: Nevermore

There’s one due date you can never escape! In October, 2014, the Post-Meridian Radio Players brought one of America's most respected authors to our stage this Hallowe’en in Tomes of Terror: Nevermore. We adapted three of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic stories, The Masque of the Red Death, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Fall of the House of Usher. And as a little extra treat to set the mood, we started with a dramatic reading of “The Raven”.

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”.
