Carmilla (Audio Drama)

Lifeline Theatre presents a three-part audio drama adaptation of J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s gothic novella Carmilla, adapted by ensemble member Aly Renee Amidei, directed by Scott Cummins.  


Young Laura is sequestered in a remote castle in Eastern Europe when a fortuitous carriage accident delivers a mysterious house guest, the bewitching Carmilla.  While the young women begin to find themselves entangled in forbidden desire, a series of unexplained, grisly murders befalls the neighboring village and woods. Could the legends be true…or is it merely superstition?  A visceral feast for the ears, experience J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s entrancing story that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
