Jeffrey Cranor & Joseph Fink take new Night Vale live show to Edinburgh Fringe by way of Bard

Sometimes described as what the News from Lake Wobegon would sound like if it had been scripted by Stephen King, Night Vale uses the mundane format of a community radio station to convey its accounts of highly disquieting goings-on in a small desert town where every conspiracy theory comes true. To feed his imagination, Cranor says, he likes to “scour community calendars” in small local newspapers.
