RadioTheatre Hour Presents THE EDGAR ALLAN POE FESTIVAL — All Things Classic Poe

Click here to read more Picture This Post RadioTheatre stories.

Fellow Poe enthusiasts, take note:

Be it in bunkers, wine cellars, castles, or even under the floorboards, the thrills and frights of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic stories of the macabre are always lurking—especially in RadioTheatre’s THE EDGAR ALLAN POE FESTIVAL.

To further extend the hauntings of Poe, RadioTheatre—as a part of their RadioTheatre Hour!— reimagined ten of his short stories by turning them into audio-only plays, each rich with, in this reviewer’s opinion, tailored music, striking sound effects, and the efforts of talented voice actors.

From mundane to madnenning, collected here in this round up are five reviews of some of Poe’s better known work featured in the festival. Here you may stumble upon the stories of a low-luck outcast, a paranoid murderer, a revenge-driven foe, and much more. 

Let shivers run down your spine, let your mind wander, let yourself be unsettled in THE EDGAR ALLAN POE FESTIVAL.
