Performance | Radio Theater presents: The Awful Truth (1937)


The screwball comedy The Awful Truth epitomizes the comedies of the late 30's and 40's, as remembered in the movie with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. The play was written in 1921, and Sydnie Grosberg Ronga has adapted the story for radio. The story begins with a happy married couple, Jerry and Lucy Warriner, who find themselves headed to divorce court when they begin to doubt each other's fidelity. They file for divorce quickly, but soon regret their hasty actions. Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry and Lucy Warriner both do their best to ruin each other's plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Molly Lamont, she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson. Custody of the dog keeps Jerry close to Lucy, and Lucy impersonates his 'sister' to foil his budding romance with Molly. Soon, it's a madcap race to bring the lovebirds back together.

Performance | Storytelling: The Spirit Survives: Education for Extinction


For decades the Indigenous nations of North America suffered the loss of their children to government boarding schools, where they were forcibly “re-educated” to assimilation and “civilization,” at the cost of culture and identity. Renowned Native American storyteller Dovie Thomason, of Lakota, Apache, and Scot Traveller descent, introduces us to the Carlisle Indian Industrial School and its profound and lingering impact on Indian and non-Indian people. Her story explores the narratives and inner resources that enabled the spirit and identity of Native peoples to survive and raises provocative questions for all contemporary Americans. Dovie Thomason has performed across the US and around the world, including at the Smithsonian and Kennedy Center, the National Museum of the American Indian, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Appropriate for adults and youth 13 and older.

Staged Reading | Honky: Race and Advertising


In Greg Kalleres's play, a black teenager is shot for his “Sky Max” shoes. Sales triple among white teens. Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame or the CEO that only sees dollar signs? Either way, a new cure for racism promises to solve everything and advertises, “If you don’t think you need it, you’re probably a racist!” Honky is a darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of advertising, race, romance and basketball shoes.

Eisa Davis's poetic, evocative play is set at the dawn of the Civil Rights movement, in 1955 -- the year Emmett Till was murdered.

Staged Reading | The Thorns of Flower Children: Aging Hippies Reflect


It’s another “Big Chill”, this time 30 years later as a gathering of friends in their 60’s, with a young millennial in their midst, experience an evening of strong emotions, unbridled joys and deep longings. What these “aging hippies” have gone through in life brings about a multitude of revelations for themselves as well as their new young friend. Over the course of a long night each character accepts the “thorns” in their lives as they begin a journey toward the perfect way to age to perfection. A poignant, and often humorous celebration of growing old and all the wonders and mysteries that go with it. Written by Michael McGovern
