These are shows which don’t fit (or don’t fit neatly) into one of our established series. Often, they are longer-form radio dramas such as 2016’s Alice in Wonderland. Sometimes, they bend the mold of an existing series somewhat; for instance, our 2015 Hallowe’en show, Monster in the Mirror differed from our Tomes of Terror format in having two segments with a shared theme rather than three unrelated stories.

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. The performance was at 7:00pm and lasted about an hour (including a Q-and-A session following the performance). Their calendar of events had more details.

This performance was broacast and streamed live on Somerville Cable Access Television, and it’s now on YouTube here, or you can watch it below.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

This December, The Post-Meridian Radio Players will be presenting an original adaptation of that 1964 Christmas classic film, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, in which Martians, concerned that their children are bored and listless and don’t want to do anything but watch Earth television programs, kidnap Santa Claus (and a couple of unlucky Earth children) from the earth and bring him to Mars to make toys so their children can be kids again. Can Santa bring joy to the Martian children and still get back to Earth in time for Christmas? This is a family-friendly event and at least for the matinée we will have some fun kids’ activities before the show.

Monster in the Mirror

Our 2015 Hallowe’en show, Monster in the Mirror, brought together two original adaptations of classic tales of terror on the topic of the horrors we may keep submerged within us—and the dreadful cost when they come out. The show featured “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Miss Hyde” as adapted by Tegan Kehoe and directed by Jess Viator and “The Frankenstein Murders”, adapted by Michael McAfee and directed by Liz Salazar.

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.
