About This Show
Join host Ms. Ali Silva, along with her amazing company of actors and musicians, for an evening of thrilling and chilling tales!
Fireside Mystery Theatre is original audio drama performed live. We're like an old-fashioned radio show with a modern macabre sensibility! We perform once a month at The Slipper Room in NYC with a full cast, a live, improvised score along with musical acts to complement our anthology of stories.
Also from Fireside Mystery Productions: The Midnight Reading, a special summer series of dramatic readings of lost classics from the world of macabre fiction that have inspired our show.

37.4 The Electric Chair: "The Usual"
4 days ago
A timid man is persuaded to take a chance and chooses a path quite different from the one he comfortably walks — a path that could lead him into some serious danger...
"The Usual" was recorded live on May 27th, 2018\. It was part of our show, **The Electric Chair**.
We at Fireside Mystery Theatre present these stories without prejudice or agenda. Our tales of the electric chair are not meant to condemn nor condone. Rather, they are meant as an expression of our persistent exploration of the dark and unsettling.
