From H.P. Lovecraft: An investigation into the disappearance of a young man from a locked room in an asylum. The only full-length work of fiction by cult American author HP Lovecraft gets a 21st-century makeover by award-winning UK-based writer-director Julian Simpson.
A young man named Charles Dexter Ward goes missing from his locked room in a Rhode Island institution, while his psychiatrist, Dr. Jonathon Willett later travels to Britain to murder a woman. That’s the start of a new podcast series from BBC Radio 4, based on an H.P. Lovecraft novel called The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, which follows a pair of investigative reporters working on a fictional true-crime podcast, Mystery Machine.
