Fred Greenhalgh, the host of Radio Drama Revival and the force behind FinalRune Productions has sent out a thank you email with a bonus! Included in it is a new production of Three Skeleton Key. Which is among the most famous of old time radio tales!
“Thank You, Thank You
2009 has been a huge year for FinalRune. Initially we didn’t think we would produce much work, but instead we have released three spectacular re-creations of old time radio plays and produced our first live radio show on Halloween – all of which blew away our expectations.
None of this could have happened without huge contributions of time and talent from numerous individuals, most notably those at The Mad Horse Theater Company. A big THANK YOU to our new friends, and we hope to have many more great productions together.
Of course, we also have a huge thank you for you, our listener, for caring about this kind of work and encouraging us to make more. 2010 promises many exciting projects, which we’ll fill you in about as soon as we possibly can.
For now, we’re proud to announce the release of the terrifying final installment of our three-part OTR project with Mad Horse, the classic Three Skeleton Key, re-energized with a fine set of performances on location at a lighthouse in Maine.”
Three Skeleton Key
Based on the story by George G. Toudouze; Adapted by James Poe; Performed by a full cast

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. First published as a short story in Esquire magazine’s January 1937 issue. Later adapted for radio by Suspense and Escape.
