The Shadow Over Innsmouth
by Scott T. Barsotti
An eager young student of anthropology is pulled toward the strange and isolated village of Innsmouth, Massachusetts. They say a pagan cult drove all the Christian churches out, and there is talk of endless tunnels beneath the town. Some say they've seen devils on the reef. But all agree on one thing: there is a dark and sinister shadow over Innsmouth.

A Beer Carol
Toasting a Holiday Classic
A live radio play that tells the story of evil CEO Bud Miller of Milweiser (large, heartless brewers of swill).

The Final Day of Joan of Arc
Experience the final day of Joan of Arc's life. Joan's trial, condemnation and execution are re-imagined in sequences of dream and memory, with design that contrasts the visual richness of renaissance and neo-classical masters of art with the world of modern artists such as Escher and Appia. The result is inspiring, provocative and heartbreaking.
