A Solstice Carol by The Dark Adventure Radio Theater
CD – The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society – approx. 2:12:00
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: A Solstice Carol combines the supernatural horror of H.P. Lovecraft with Dickens’ celebrated holiday ghost story in the style of a 1930s radio drama. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents the tale with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies.
This unique anthology holiday episode combines three of Lovecraft’s most popular shorter stories with a healthy dollop of the Dickens classic. Listeners will visit snowy Kingsport and discover the horrid rites celebrated in The Festival. They’ll travel to Boston and the studios of ghoulish artist Richard Upton Pickman to see the horrors in Pickman’s Model. And they’ll learn the dreadful secret of the shunned Outsider.
This special holiday episode weighs in at nearly 90 minutes and comes as a special two disc set that includes almost 45 minutes of bonus material. In addition to the CDs, you’ll get five carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience.
