Publisher's Summary

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed "Tales from Beyond the Pale", audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. Having previously released 10 studio-recorded Tales for Season One, Fessenden and McQuaid decided to up the ante and stage a second season of Tales before a live audience at the performance venue Dixon Place in downtown New York City.

What the Critics Say

"Fans of shows from A Prairie Home Companion to This American Life that take their stylistic cues from radio's glory days should enjoy these macabre R-rated tales." (The New York Times)

"Some episodes re-create pop-culture archetypes…Other episodes play with expectations of characters that seem familiar… At least half the enjoyment, though, is the colorful sound design." (The Wall Street Journal)

    "Best Yet"

    Ashley Thorpe's stories are so well crafted and entertaining without being over the top. I hope he writes another story for Tales Beyond the Pale.
