DIARY OF A MADMAN

Diary Of A Madman

diary-of-a-madman-2

If you enjoyed listening to Matthew Jure in this, why not listen to him in THE STRANGE CASE OF SPRINGHEEL'D JACK?

Set in St Petersburg at the time of the Czar, Gogol's black comedy sees the clerk Poprishchin sharpening endless quills for his boss while fantasising wildly about the boss's daughter.
.
In the insane bureaucratic hierarchy of 19th century Russia, rung after rung stretches above and minion after minion competes below with our poor protagonist whose life is empty of everything but obsessive work and ambition. With surreal wit and darkly absurd humour (dogs, noses and Spain all loom large in Poprishchin's slide into delusion), this loser's Hamlet explores the gulf between who we are and who we dream we might be.
.
Matthew Jure is an award winning actor whose critically acclaimed roles have included the amnesiac man in arthouse film Undertow, obsessive-destructive mathematician Septimus Hodge in Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia and the title role in Macbeth. Matthew has been nominated for five awards and has won three: Best Newcomer (BIRSt, BBC-SRA Awards); Best Actor in a Short Film (Undertow, New York International Independent Film Festival), and Best Actor in a Feature Film (Starlight & Superfish, Michigan Blue Water Film Festival).

THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO

A Binaural Recording

1289310211657_597ff_medium

This is a BINAURAL recording and must be listened to with headphones for the full effect. We suggest listening alone.... in the dark....!

The Cask of Amontillado is Edgar Allan Poe’s short but enigmatic masterpiece. Set in an unnamed Italian City we hear the story of how Montresor lures Fortunato through the catacombs into the Montresor family vault and there chains him up and bricks him in for eternity.

Why he does it we will never know, but he does so with a casual savagery that is truly chilling.

"Cask' was recorded on location in ancient vaults. Every footstep and cough, every brick and every echo are captured and you will never forget hearing the final, faraway declamation: 'In pace requiescat!'

Starring: Adam Cole and Andrew Ward

Edgar Allen Poe

Logo Grimm

Check out the photos HERE by Dean Faulkner.

Based on the works of Edgar Allen Poe, GRIMM was Recorded in front of a terrified live audience on the 7th May 2009, you'd be mad not to listen.

"TRUE! Nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why WILL you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How then am I mad? Hearken! And observe how healthily, how calmly, I can tell you the whole story." Edgar Allen Poe.

Come with us as we take you on a journey of madness, terror and gruesome, GRUESOME MURDER!

The decaying walls of Stottesden Hall are the setting for our  LIVE recording of a new radio play by award winning team, writer Stuart Price and composer Michael Bruce.
