Valdemar

by Mark Redfield

Redfield takes his inspiration for the script from the Edgar Allan Poe short story “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar”, and sets his story in a dreamlike urban city in the early 20th century. A world where the rich and pampered collide with the side-show carnival huckster and conman. A world were the greedy and selfish fall victim to their own desires, with horrifying consequences. For no man, or woman, can truly escape death…

Poe’s original story “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar”, from which this audio play is inspired, was published in 1845. A work of horror fiction, it is also something of a hoax, as the story was originally published without claiming it was fictional, and readers believed the events described, of a man called Valdemar mesmerized at the point of death and upon coming out of the trance, devolving into a puddle of putrefaction. It was published simultaneously in “The American Review” and “Broadway Journal”, December 1845. Many readers thought the events to be true, until Poe admitted otherwise in his “Marginalia”. Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote to Poe to commend him on his talent for “making horrible improbabilities seem near and familiar”. The most well-known film adaptation appears in Roger Corman’s “Tales of Terror” (1962) starring Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone.
