Away Shows

These are shows we’ve performed away from our regular venues in Davis Square (and at the Arisia science-fiction convention). These are typically done in collaboration with other organizations, and are often one-performance events (rather than one- or two-weekend shows). See also our events at the Arisia science-fiction convention, as well as our Big Broadcasts, which were regular multi-night runs, but at larger theatres than our usual church venues.

The Silver Shade at Boskone 57

She seeks out justice where others cannot go; she is the Silver Shade. The Post Meridian Radio Players presents an homage to the pulp adventure series of the golden age of radio. High school teacher Penelope Umberson has a super power she keeps hidden from the world, but when a student comes to her for help when a parent is framed for murder, she must learn to use her ability to set things right.

The Post-Meridian Radio Players performed “The Silver Shade: Help from the Shadows”, directed by Michael McAfee and written by Michael McAfee, Jennifer Pelland, Abigail Walzer, and Cari Keebaugh,, at Boskone 57 on February 14, 2020, and you can listen to the recording here!

VOX POP presents The Cask of Amontillado

On Friday, August 23, 2019, PMRP reprised our original adaptation of “The Cask of Amontillado” at the Somerville Media Center’s pop-up performance space VOX POP at 431 Artisan Way in Assembly Square, Somerville.

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”!
