It’s autumn and that means it’s time for tales to chill your spine and curdle your blood. We’ll be reading two short plays from the golden age of radio. The Thought tells the story of a young wife who gets an ominous message from a local psychic. In Alive in the Grave a guilty conscience plagues a troubled man. Will our heroes survive to tell their stories of fright? Will the spirits from beyond win the day? Will there be yummy snacks? Tune in this October… (but we can tell you right now, there will be yummy snacks).
Radio plays are sound and dialogue based dramas which came to popularity in the 1930s. They lost their mass appeal due to the advent of television in the 1960s.
At The Classically Forgotten Collaborative Reading Series, The Bent Quill Players stage extemporaneous readings of little performed plays from the classic period. Those who want to can show up early on the day and claim a part to perform during the reading. We’ll be foot loose and rehearsal free for this six reading series. Join us to meet new friends, mingle, and nibble on refreshments while enjoying some impromptu live theater.
