WildClaw Theatre has extended the deadline for submissions to Deathscribe 2009, its second annual festival of short radio plays. Entries are now due by July 31. "We are looking for genuinely scary, chilling, intelligent, suspenseful, horrific, imaginative or downright grotesque ten-minute radio scripts," says a release. "We put no restrictions on contestants as to content or tone, but keep in mind that we are a Horror Theatre. We take our horror seriously, and so should you."

Founded by British expat writer-director Charley Sherman, WildClaw specializes in stage versions of classic horror literature, and is aimed at an audience "craving strange journeys of dread, suspense, terror and wonder." Deathscribe is intended to evoke classic radio programs such as Lights Out and Inner Sanctum Mysteries. This year's five winning plays will performed in October at the Music Box Theatre by local actors and sound-effects artists.
