Mad Horse OTR

Mad Horse and FinalRune Production at Goat Island

FinalRune had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with Portland, Maine-based Mad Horse Theater Company in the re-creation of some classic old-time radio plays.

Two of the stories came straight out of the radio canon – Three Skeleton Key and Sorry, Wrong Number, with the lesser-known The Most Dangerous Game rounding out the project.

Production wrapped in September 2009. Read up about the field production or see a photo slideshow.

Productions Available:

Wealthy big-game hunter Sanger Rainsford falls off his boat in the middle of the Caribbean and finds himself on a curious island. He finds the mansion of General Zaroff, a Cossack who has a taste for the hunt, and will go to any extreme to keep himself entertained.

Three Skeleton Key

Three men who tend the light at a reclusive island off the coast of French Guiana see a rogue ship adrift in the Atlantic. The reason for the derelict ship soon becomes obvious – it has been overrun by hundreds of thousands of ferocious ship’s rats.

The rats land on the isle and soon we are in for a claustrophobic tale of terror as the three men struggle to keep their minds from cracking under the pressure of thousands and thousands of squeaking, scratching, hungry rats.
