Audio Play - The Cask of Amontillado, starring Mark Redfield and John Astin!
Just in time for the Halloween season, the Poe Forevermore Radio Theater presents THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO - available for a mere $1.99 at CD Baby:
THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO stars John Astin as Montresor and Mark Redfield as Fortunato. The play was adapted from Poe's short story and directed by Tony Tsendeas.
Poe Forevermore Radio Theater brings you adaptations of contemporary and classic tales of mystery, horror and the imagination. The series is produced and hosted by its creator Mark Redfield.
Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" was published in November 1846, in Godey's Lady's Book. This performance of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" was recorded before a live audience on June 22nd, 2013 at Westminster Hall Burial Grounds, in Baltimore, Maryland, where Edgar Allan Poe is buried.
I listened to this play on my drive in to work this morning, and it is really terrific. It is adapted from the Poe story, slightly updated but retaining all the Poe chills and charm. Mark Redfield is especially impressive as Fortunato, and it is great to hear fan favorite John Astin at work as well.
