Dark Adventure Radio Theatre
The Colour Out of Space

"It was just a colour out of space -
a frightful messenger from unformed realms
of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it"

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.

In addition to the full 77 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:

• The work order initiating construction of the Mattapan Reservoir in 1928

• Professor Lamb's rebuttal to the Chairman of the Geology Department

• A photo of the meteorite crater from the Boston Daily Advertiser in 1882

• The last will and testament of Nahum Gardner

These great props are complemented by the fantastic artwork of illustrator Darrell Tutchton in the style you've come to know and love from other episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre.

Listener Thomas says,
The Colour Out of Space has been my favorite HPL story since reading it way back in middle school. Considering the near technical impossibility of putting the Colour on screen, I never had much faith in seeing it translated into a medium other than print, but the DART version is nothing short of stellar. I listened to it earlier this year coming back from a murderously long day in the field and the combination of the story, late winter gloom and a thunderstorm on the horizon made for one of the best horror experiences I've ever enjoyed. Again, many thanks to you and all others involved, the hard work is much appreciated.
