"You still think it’s all a fraud! You still think I made It, eh?  You think my greatest figures are nothing but lifeless wax? "

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre® presents Hazel Heald and H.P. Lovecraft's classic tale of waxen horror in a 1930s-style radio drama. The story lurches to life with a cast of professional actors, thrilling sound effects and an original orchestral score by Reber Clark.

Steven Jones, an entertainment producer from Chicago, journeys to London in search of new acts. There he discovers the strange and disturbing wax museum of Rodgers and his inscrutable associate Orabona. Is the mad artist able to conjure up the world's most horrifying waxen effigies through his occult inspirations, or is there a darker secret lurking behind the wax and paint? 

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

  • Page from the fabled Pnakotic Fragments

They've done it again!

Once again the HPLHS has knocked it out of the block with a breath-taking radio drama. Not only do we get to hear Sean Branney in all his cockney glory (I mean that in a good way!), but David Pavao gets to take center stage. I've enjoyed David since his Brotherhood of the Beast part of Jordan Lowell. Everyone involved does a suprurb job as always.
Do youself a favor and pick up a Dark Adventure Radio Drama today!

Good Twist at the End

This adaptation stays fairly close to the original story, adding a final twist to their adaptations of Lovecraft’s stories, making his downer endings just a little bit darker. This tale about the price of achieving immortality through works of art gets an extra boost from this adaptation. The cast and crew add much in the way of atmosphere and dialog which help bring to life one of Lovecraft's lesser works. (For me at least.)

fun introduction to the DART

This was my first introduction to DART, and it was a fun choice. Loved how the actors tried to sound Canadian, and I believe I heard one use the phrase "take off"... Seriously, the voice acting was extremely good, the production quality exceptional, and the props well chosen leads into the show. The story line was a touch predictable, but did not detract from enjoyment at all.
This is a relatively short show, perhaps 80 minutes or so, which was good for me because i could enjoy it within a single evening. I strongly recommend it.

HPHLS never fail to deliver excellence

Geriatric fantasy/Sci-Fi/Horror/Strange Tales etc fan from UK.

As with all of HPLHS offerings this is excellent. Rather than review this title I'd like to review HPLHS itself. I've got most of their stuff (a lot from audible) and pride of place is The Complete Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. Many people have tried to "read" Lovecraft but these are the only people that really capture the feel of the stories.

I have over 2Tb of Old Time Radio and their Dark Adventure Radio series capture the atmosphere of the old radio series perfectly. "At The Mountains Of Madness" is my Christmas Morning play while preparing the Christmas food (ok so other people have It's a wonderful life) and "A Solstice Carol" is my Christmas Eve offering.
Thank you to all the people involved in these brilliant productions.
