The Island of Dr. Moreau – LIVE

The Ghosts Project logoPerformed live at the Academy Theatre October 2010, with music by The Ghosts Project!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Moreau, misunderstood and hounded by the London medical community, retreats to a Pacific island to continue his experiments. The goal: Nothing less than to surgically rebuild animals into the shape of men — and to teach them the meaning of humanity.

What is the law? Not to eat flesh or fish, that is the law; are we not men? What is the law? Not to chase other men, that is the law; are we not men?

As castaway Edward Prendick learns, Moreau is a feared, wrathful “god” to his beastmen. And in comparing Moreau to his lumbering, gentle servant M’Ling, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is the man, and which is the beast.

Wells’ classic shocker raises the question of what it means to be human. “Pain… is such a little thing…”

Herbert George Wells is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking science fiction (The Time Machine) and social commentary (The Shape of Things to Come), but his place in horror fiction is assured by the novella The Island of Doctor Moreau. Edward Prendick is adrift on a weathered lifeboat when he is rescued, reluctantly, by Dr Moreau. Moreau is returning to his remote island laboratory with a shipload of animals, source material for his greatest challenge; surgically rebuilding animals into human form. To Prendick’s astonishment and horror, Moreau is well along in his work, and the beast-men are already displaying intelligence and language skills. “Are we not men?” reads the beast-men’s catechism, and the answer is not obvious.


Featuring the voices of Hal Wiedeman as Dr Moreau, Brian Troxell as Edward Prendick, Ron N. Butler as Montgomery, J. E. Hurlburt as M’ling, and Daniel Taylor as the Sayer of the Law.

Also appearing are Clair W. Kiernan, Fiona K. Leonard, Daniel W. Kiernan, Trudy Leonard, Andrew Chiang, Naaman Taylor, Kelley S. Ceccato, Tammie Hood, Mary Buchanan, and Paul Patterson.

Adapted by Thomas E Fuller. Directed by William Alan Ritch. Original score composed and performed by The Ghosts Project, Paul Mercer and Davis Petterson with Alton Leonard. Foley effects by Sonya Arundar and Mary Ward with David Benedict. Produced by David Benedict and soundscaped by William Alan Ritch. Audio engineering by Bob Zimmerman. Post-production by Bob Zimmerman and Grayson Bergmann.

Tales From the Dark River

Additional DescriptionMore Details

There is a river that flows through the misty landscape of imagination, seeping up through the rocky earth high in the Appalachian Mountains. It winds southward through the foothills and the piedmont: It tumbles past the fall line, widens and deepens, and then meanders across the coastal plain until it finally reaches the gulf of Mexico.

And all along its length the great river inspires stories to tease listeners into wonder, or send a shiver down their spines.

These are the tales from the Dark River.

For the first time, hear original stories created by Dark River Writers, Atlanta’s professional association of fantasy, horror, science fiction and mystery authors.

This collection is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Thomas E. Fuller, a longtime member of the group, and the one who gave us our name.

The Rats in the Walls – LIVE

The Ghosts Project logoPerformed live at the Academy Theatre October 2012, with music by The Ghosts Project!

 

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Delapore. A name with a history. A history of unspeakable atrocity; a history of black arts; a history of hatred, and terror. Delapore. It’s just a name, now. In this case, it is the name of a man returning to England to reclaim the lands of his family. The name of a man who knows the skeletons in his family’s closet — or so he thinks. Delapore. Surely it is possible to outlive the past. Surely it is possible to outrun one’s ancestors, to outrun history — to outrun fate. Surely a man’s destiny lies in his own hands, and not in the misdeeds of men a hundred generations dead. Beware, England. The last Delapore has come home.

Dr. Geoffry Stanhope, Investigator of Occult Phenomena: The Dweller in the Depths

It is the habit of military men to write memoirs, a habit that reached it’s peak during Victoria’s reign, that High Noon of Empire.  Over one third of the world owed it’s allegiance to the Widow of Windsor and her sons dutifully returned to her after their tours of duty, armed with pen and ink to record their experiences.  The bright light of England was everywhere — but light casts shadows and in shadows strange things breed.  Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, late of Her Majesty’s Armies in India, chose to tell of those shadows and one man who delved into them.

Doctor Geoffry Stanhope, Investigator of Occult Phenomena. Reminiscences from the Memoirs of Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, British India Army, Retired.

In this episode: The Loch Ness Monster is only a story, isn’t it? Dr. Stanhope and Colonel Fizwilliams investigate!
