Since 2005, the Somerville-based Post-Meridian Radio Players (PMRP) have been performing live radio plays the way it was done back in the 1930’s and 40’s. The Boston Phoenix called PMRP “that outstanding theater of old-time radio thrills.” Their re-creation of Arch Oboler’s Chicken Heart, the infamous lost episode of the seminal horror series Lights Out! reignited local interest in the art and history of radio drama. Capitalizing on that successful performance, the PMRP produced its first full evening of staged radio plays for Halloween in 2006 and have presented a live Halloween show every year since. The group has also appeared regularly at the popular Arisia science-fiction convention in Cambridge, produced original audio dramas for Internet distribution and performed in Boston’s Orpheum Theatre as part of First Night 2009. Their first performance at the Somerville Theatre was last year’s Big Broadcast of October 30th, 1938. Their website is http://www.pmrp.org.
