Why would anyone go see a radio play? Because it's a super amount of fun. That's why.
Our friends at Raconteur Radio return to present a live radio play.
Raconteur Radio Presents
Gaslight: A Staged Radio Play
Why does the flame go down? No one in the house has lit any other lamps, and yet it dims. Then brightens. And what about the footsteps overhead, seemingly from the sealed attic? Something is slowly driving Paula Alquist mad. Is it the house? Where Paula's aunt, a famous and beautiful concert singer, was murdered ten years before, her lifeless body discovered by the young Paula herself? Or is it her new husband, an older man she met in Italy who convinces her to return to the murder scene and make it their home? What does he do for a living? Why does he go out every night and leave her alone to fret and worry? These are the questions that Scotland Yard detective Brian Cameron seeks to answer before Paula is driven completely and utterly insane. Theatrical lighting! Period costumes! Golden Age radio equipment! Vintage commercials!
This is just a super fun, throwback of an evening.
