Macabre Mansion Presents “The Fall Of The House Of Usher” – an original audio drama adaptation of the short story by Edgar Allan Poe. Starring Kevin Sorbo (Hercules, the Legendary Journeys, Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda), John Billingsley (Star Trek: Enterprise, The Others, True Blood 2012), Bonita Friedericy (NBC’s Chuck), and Jim O’Rear (The Dead Matter, Day Of The Dead, Star Trek 4, Lethal Weapon 3, Cop & 1/2).
Description: Driven to the edge of insanity, Roderick Usher believes unknown forces torture his every moment. In a final attempt at finding a moment’s peace, he begs his childhood friend to come to his aid. Upon arriving, Roderick’s friend soon discovers all is not what it seems in the macabre House Of Usher.
This adaptation stays true to Poe’s original vision with only minor changes in dialogue. The script consists of four speaking roles; Roderick Usher (O’Rear), Madeline Usher (Friedericy), the family Doctor (Billingsley) and the Narrator (Sorbo) who is an un-named childhood friend of Roderick. The Audio Drama has the same feel and style of the classic Old Time Radio shows.
