A Midnight Dreary:
All things heard in the heavens and the earth
Four macabre tales of terror from Edgar Allan Poe, adapted as an audio drama series by Robert Pike and Bridget Grace Sheaff
Join us for an audio experience that will stimulate the senses, provoke the imagination, and stir up fear in the hearts of the most reckless. We Happy Few at Home brings you four tales of terror spread over two audio broadcasts. For our first episode, enjoy the festival spirit as long as you dare with The Masque of the Red Death and The Cask of Amontillado. Episode two will take you to dark, confined spaces - both physical and mental - with The Tell-Tale Heart and The Premature Burial.
You will be invited to delve deeper into the macabre world of Edgar Allan Poe by electing to enjoy optional experience-building materials. Set the scene, dress for the part, and get your custom cocktail ready with our accompanying materials sent directly to your home.
