Talkin’ bout Deathscribe

Monday this week, I had the distinct pleasure to catch the 5th annual DEATHSCRIBE international festival of horror radio plays, produced by the eminent WildClaw Theatre of Chicago.

What. A. Night.  A contest between 5 short horror audio plays, ranging from serial killers to post-apocalyptic nightmares to the ever-loved giant-fish-monster.  The show had some of the sharpest live foley I’ve seen recently (really great trick with a pair of dishtowels to make the most intimidating angel-wings I’ve ever heard), clever writing (a teenager chooses to rob a man’s house in The Wall because he frequently comes into his hardware store, buys lots of plastic sheeting, locks, and saws, and always pays cash), dynamic performers, and kickin’ music.  If you’re in the Chicagoland area, put it on your calendar for next year.  Right now.

You can follow WildClaw on facebook here (and see images from the evening),  and look forward to their upcoming live production of “The Shadow over Innsmouth,” for which they need lots and lots of fish.  We’ll be there.  With bells.

See you in the tunnels,

VP Gardner
