Weirton, W.Va., October 23, 2023— This Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023, Cloak & Dagger On the Air
presents its annual Halloween show at 4 p.m. at Top of West Virginia Convention & Visitors
Bureau, located at 3539 Main Street in Weirton (across from Ferguson Tire Pros).
Titled Dark Fantasies, the show will explore three harrowing stories from the darkest corners of
our fears and fantasies, each written by some of the foremost playwrights in American radio
The stories are “Cat Wife” by Arch Oboler, in which a troubled marriage is thrown into chaos by
the wife’s sudden transformation into (you guessed it) a cat; “Carmilla” by Sheridan Le Fanu and
Lucille Fletcher, wherein a family’s houseguest shows an unusual (and bloodthirsty) interest in
their daughter; and “I Saw Myself Running” by Antony Ellis, in which a woman battles her
greatest foe while dreaming.
“We look forward to our annual Halloween show,” Fernbaugh said. “It gives us a chance to dust
off and reimagine some classic scripts, such as ‘Cat Wife’ which is pure camp and ‘Carmilla’
which is pure horror and ‘I Saw Myself Running’ which is one of the best psychological thrillers
ever written for any medium. I think our audience will enjoy these dark fantasies as they
celebrate the spookiest season of the year.”

DeSantis, Bethany Fernbaugh, Pete Fernbaugh, Robert J. Gaudio, Noah Hilton, and Karissa
