Arch Oboler was to radio what Rod Serling was to TV. Though he’s no longer a household name, due to lack of radio reruns, Oboler was a master of his medium, an innovative writer/director/producer who favored spine tingling, socially conscious science fiction and horror stories and politically charged, left-leaning dramas. Oboler began scripting radio shows as a teenager and rose to success with the 1930s thriller anthology Lights Out. He went on to create the largely anti-war themed series Arch Oboler’s Plays, which featured great stars such as Joan Crawford, James Cagney and Katharine Hepburn, to name but a few.
This is the first installment of Abaton Radio Theater, a series that will include original contemporary work, as well as vintage material.
This disc contains two plays:
Catwife: The gripping horror story of a once loving marriage gone wildly awry!
Baby: A psychological drama exploring a young wife’s confrontation with the possibility of motherhood and the certainty of World War.
