"Whether the dreams brought on the fever or the fever brought on the dreams Walter Gilman did not know."

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre®: The Dreams in the Witch House lets you hear Lovecraft's eerie tale as it might have been dramatized for radio in the 1930s.

Walter Gilman, a mathematics student at Miskatonic University, takes up lodging in Arkham's legend haunted "Witch House". Before long, the room's weird architecture and disturbing dreams invade his psyche. Is he going mad, or are his horrifying dreams somehow becoming reality?

In addition to the full 74 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:

• a newspaper clipping from the Arkham Advertiser reporting on the demolition of the famed Witch House

• a transcript of the deposition of accused witch Keziah Mason from 1692

• a page from Walter Gilman's journal, detailing the bizarre collision of mathematics and folklore

• the Accession Card for the Miskatonic University Exhibit Museum, cataloging the corpse of Brown Jenkin

All of these great extras are complemented by the fantastic artwork of illustrator Darrell Tutchton in the style you've come to know and love from other episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre®. The CD edition of the show includes a free digital download.

The cover art is available on shirts and other fun merch in our Redbubble store.

Dreams in the Witch House

Very worthwhile. Another great audio experience.

One of my favorites, and well done!

This story has always been near the top of my list from HPL and this adaptation really hits all the high notes. The atmosphere is great for one of the darker tales in the mythos. Cheers

Love this one!

Love this adaptation especially the quality sound work. As when Gilman begins to hear the sounds of the Witch and company from the other side of the walls. The sound work added another dimension to the overall presentation. As always, the acting was excellent, and the production aspects were on point as usual. I would highly recommend this episode.




“The Dreams in the Witch-House” short story may not enjoy the most favourable reputation among Lovecraft enthusiasts, but it was a tale I took to from the first, probably thanks to my background in the physical sciences, and the way Lovecraft, as so often, skilfully blended fact and fiction in it. Adapting it as a DART production, while needing changes to make it work for the audio medium, has been equally well done, retaining much of the original’s weirdness, and giving fresh life to the denizens of the House and its neighbourhood. I’m sure I’m not alone in finding perhaps the creepiest moment was the final remark by Fr. Ivanicki (Time Winters) to the bereft, seemingly doomed, narrator Frank Elwood (Sean Branney), near the end of the show! As with all the DART adaptations, the props the physical product arrives with are half the wonder, here including a photo of the desiccated remains of Brown Jenkin, complete with its Miskatonic U. Accession Card - another mystery for folklorist Wilmarth, as noted on it - part of Keziah Mason’s trial transcript, a news-cutting concerning what was found during the demolition of the House, and, most intriguingly, a page from Walter Gilman’s notes, in which (is it just me?) two diagrams look like something akin to a certain Shining Trapezohedron in form...
