A young man's travels in search of antiquarian architecture and his own family history brings him to the ill-regarded Massachusetts town of Innsmouth. There he uncovers horrors beyond his worst imaginings, barely escaping with his life and sanity.
Lovecraft wrote the story in 1931 after a visit to Newburyport and the surrounding region. Long considered one of Lovecraft's most popular tales, the Dark Adventure Radio Theatre edition brings it to life in all its monstrous and malodorous glory. This old-time radio adaptation features a cast of more than a dozen professional actors, exciting sound effects and a thrilling original musical score by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu). Sit down, dim the lights, fire up the wireless and enjoy 77 minutes of exciting Lovecraftian drama, suspense and cosmic horror.

Some Dark Adventure Radio Theatre fans have asked if we'd make the scripts available so people can read along. So here, for your enjoyment, is a free PDF download of the final recording script of The Shadow Over Innsmouth. The performance of the script turned out to be longer than can fit on a CD, so you will see portions of the script in strikeout which were deleted from the final CD. Note: this script is a readalong companion to Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. This script may not be performed without the written consent of HPLHS, Inc.
