Mysterious and macabre writings of Edgar Allan Poe form the basis for "Twisted Tales of Poe," 1940's-style radio adaptations, complete with musical accompaniment and a live crew creating all of the sound effects while you watch!

Maher’s new play, Jim Lehrer and the Theater and Its Double and Jim Lehrer’s Double, will premiere in a Theater Oobleck production on Inauguration Day, January 20, featuring both Colm O’Reilly and Brian Shaw as versions of Lehrer—one the retired PBS NewsHour anchor, the other a failed playwright, and both in imminent danger in what Oobleck describes as “a comic-gothic horror tale that relates the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and Antonin Artaud to the politics and theater of our day.”
