Deep in the dark woods, scattered about a crackling fire, a group of young friends are telling tales. Tales of old horrors and modern terror. Stories of dread and woe, mystery and insanity all the while the fire casts moving, flickering shadows all around.
Back on Halloween of 2016 The Post-Meridian Radio Players took an audience to this place for eight spine-chilling tales told in the style of the golden-age of radio. And now these tales are coming home ... your home in fact.
