The Curse of Yig by H.P. Lovecraft and Zealia Bishop

CD – Dark Adventure Radio Theatre – approx 1:08

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Curse of Yig brings to life H.P. Lovecraft and Zealia Bishop’s tale of the curse of an ancient snake god in a 1930s-style radio drama. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents the tale with a cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Reber Clark and Troy Sterling Nies.

A student of Native American lore investigates Yig – the shadowy snake god of an extinct tribe of the Great Plains. His investigation uncovers an account from 1889 of settlers homesteading in the Indian Territories of Oklahoma. A pervasive fear of snakes nudges a simple settler towards madness. Are his fears of the dreaded snake god’s curse just the result of hearing old stories, or is a new story unfolding as Yig’s curse takes hold?

The CD edition features the 70-ish minute audio show plus a collection of props to enhance your listening experience. The props include:

  • a map of the Oklahoma Territory from 1889
  • a newspaper account describing a trip through the wilds of the west
  • a unique Native American depiction of Yig
  • a land office homestead claim to 160 acres
