Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Colour Out of Space brings Lovecraft’s tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio in the 1930s. In the style of The War of the Worlds, The Shadow and our own At the Mountains of Madness, The Dunwich Horror, The Shadow Out of Time, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Call of Cthulhu and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, Dark Adventure Radio Theatre dramatizes HPL’s story with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness).
The impact of a meteorite on a remote Massachusetts farm unleashes a strange and disturbing series of events. Before men of science from Miskatonic University can determine what it is, the space rock apparently evaporates. But terrible changes overtake the farm and its inhabitants, propelling them on a horrific course of desolation, madness, and death. The sole witness to the event unwinds a chilling and disturbing tale of cosmic horror. On many occasions, Lovecraft described this story as his favorite of his tales.
