Clay McLeod Chapman's The Pumpkin Pie Show returns with a fresh slice of brand new campfire tale telling. In true Halloween spirit(s), this year's show tackles a whole bevy of everyday horrors, including a case of post-partum depression that quickly descends into Edgar Allan Poe-style madness, possessed hair extensions, haunted vinyl, masturbating in the middle of a Broadway matinee of Phantom of the Opera, and much, much more literary depravity.
