The Tell-Tale Heart, one of Edgar Allan Poe's best known works, was written in 1842. The tale of madness involves a number of senses, but comes to a dramatic climax with a single sound -- a heart beating beneath the floor. George adapted the story into a radio drama, The Heartbeat, which was then produced by @auburnuniversitytheatre's Radio Flyer Theatre. Enjoy this modern re-imagining of the classic story on this episode! You can hear the entire version from @scottkwaters here: https://soundcloud.com/scottkwaters/radio-flyer-theatre-heartbeat The Heartbeat was directed by Anna Claire Walker. It was produced by Taylor Dyleski, Kelly Walker as well as additional production, sound design and audio engineering from Scott Waters for Auburn University's Radio Flyer Theatre. It was adapted by @georgedrakejr Also, find out more about Edgar Allan Poe at The Poe Museum Website: http://www.poemuseum.org/ If you haven’t read the original prose of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ by Edgar Allan Poe, you should read that first: http://www.poemuseum.org/works-telltale.php
