Imprisoned With the Pharaohs by The Dark Adventure Radio Theater
CD – The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society – approx. 76:19
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: Imprisoned with the Pharaohs lets you hear this eerie tale of Egyptian mystery as it might have been dramatized for radio in the 1930s. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents HPL’s story with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies.
In 1924, Lovecraft ghost-wrote this story for the celebrated magician and escape artist Harry Houdini. In the tale, Houdini visits Cairo hoping to tease out the mysteries of Ancient Egypt. He gets more than he bargained for as he runs afoul of a gang of dubious bedouins who plunge him headlong into a terror filled adventure beneath the pyramids. Will Houdini be able to make the most difficult escape of his storied career, or will he join the untold legions of the dead waiting in the darkness?
In addition to the full radio drama on CD, you’ll get carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience.
