“Sleep is dying, and has been for a long time now, through uncounted ticks of clocks and the flickers of thousands of too-brief candles.”
It’s the night of the Senior Prom, and rather than show up awkwardly, Cassie has decided to stay home with the Dark Tome. But, she soon meets a mysterious stranger with an invitation to a masquerade ball wicked and mysterious, far stranger than any rites of spring. What she learns there will reshape her thoughts on dance, if she can ever make it back.
Based on the short story, “Murdered Sleep,” by Kathleen Howard. Originally published in Apex Magazine. Adapted for audio by Fred Greenhalgh. Produced by Fred Greenhalgh and William Dufris. Directed by William Dufris.
