"The Cask of Amontillado"
by Edgar Allen Poe
Adapted for radio by D. Chapelle
Edgar Allan Poe's short story 'The Cask of Amontillado' is about a man named Montresor who decides to seek revenge against a man named Fortunato, who has insulted him. He meets Fortunato at a carnival, lures him into the catacombs of his home, and buries him alive.
One of the interesting things about doing radio drama is that you don’t
have to look the part to perform the part. A short guy can play a basketball player or a sweet little girl can play a cranky
old woman or a teenager can play a senior citizen. Case in point is an actor named Casey Kasem. He started playing Shaggy in
the Scooby-Doo cartoons when he was thirty-seven years old and kept at it until he was seventy-seven. It also means you can
use as few or as many actors as you’d like. If you have any questions about how any of this works drop me a
