    The Dunwich Horror LIVE

    $7.00

    Ah, the sweet, sweet singing of the whip-poor-wills. Surely one of the most innocent, purest birdsongs one can know, plaintive and perfect in the clean morning light.

    Unless, of course, you happen to live near the decayed New England village of Dunwich. Unless, of course, you have seen the mad fires blazing from the ancient stone circles atop Sentinel Mountain. Unless, of course, you remember the horrible events of seventy years ago and happen to be familiar with the name “Whately.”

    Then the singing of whip-poor-wills isn’t so sweet and their patient waiting anything but innocent…

    In H P Lovecraft’s classic horror story, an old man consents to a radio interview. In that interview a number of terrible truths come out.

    The truth about an expedition to Antarctica in the 1920’s where everyone died horribly. The truth about an attempt to find the expedition’s mysterious killers. The truth about a desolate plateau in the heart of a frozen continent. The truth about life and intelligence on the planet Earth.

    And the truth about the prehistoric horror that still waits lurking… At the Mountains of Madness.

    The Colour Out of Space

    The “blasted heath” they called it. Five acres of grey desolation, like a sore eaten into the land.

    West of Arkham, the hills rise wild. There are dark little glens where the trees hang precariously, and where thin brooklets trickle, never having been touched by sunlight. There was once a road over the hills and through the valley, but people ceased to use it. The old folk have died or gone away, and the farms and villages are slowly decaying back into dark woods and narrow clearings.

    A family died up there. Of a poisoned well…

Our Story

The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company was founded in 1984 by radio personality William L. Brown and actor/director Patrick Stansbury.  ARTC is a non-profit educational corporation, dedicated to the production and distribution of quality audio drama.

The Timeline

Since our founding, ARTC has expanded substantially. As one of the few audio drama companies in the world to perform live regularly, we do between 6-8 shows per year primarily at speculative fiction conventions. We also publish a podcast, the Centauri Express Audio Magazine and release between 2-3 studio productions per year recorded at our own facility, ARTC Studio. Over the years we have been privileged to work with a number of extremely talented vocal performers, musicians, and writers and have access to a wide variety of voices and other talents.
