In spite of the blackout, Swanson arrives and engages Sylvia in a disturbing conversation. When Noah gets home, though, Swanson vanishes. As the night continues, sights and sounds become even stranger and more ominous. Are they Sylvia’s hallucinations, or is the danger real?

Her plays have been produced across the US and Canada by companies including the American Globe, Manhattan Repertory, She Speaks, Last Frontier, and Sign Post Forest Theatres, as well as The Disreputables in Washington, D.C.

Honest Arrangement by David Weiner directed by Jim Wicker

Willie, a lonely widower, nervously awaits the arrival of his email-order bride at a busy airport. Both of them end up with considerably more – and less – than they expected.

David Wiener’s plays have been produced in England, India, Canada, and the U.S. (and have also been published in the Smith and Kraus “Best Plays” anthology series). He completed a Literary Internship with La Jolla Playhouse and worked as their Dramaturgy Associate; currently he sits on the Board of the Horton Plaza Theatres Foundation.

Bliss by William Russell directed by Bonnie Agan

Burt takes care of everyone’s grave in the cemetery except for Olivia, a teenaged girl who died in a car accident, making blood enemies of her brother Larry and her boyfriend Ham, who was driving. These three, along with two homeless men and a mysterious stranger, meet in the cemetery thirty years later. Will old hatreds lead to another tragedy?

William Russell’s play Renovations (renovationstheplay.com) was produced last year in New York at Theater for the New City. He has had other plays produced in Manhattan, as well as in Brooklyn; Woodstock, NY; Norwalk, CT; and Los Angeles. For several years, Russell was an actor/writer member of the avant-garde theatre troupe Quena Company. As a writer/actor member of Theatre Artists Workshop, Russell’s work has been included in the Workshop’s productions of the Playwrights’ One-Act Festival; the WOW Festival; Songs and Stories; and New York State of Mind, among others.

The Porch by Barry M. Putt, Jr.

Barry M. Putt, Jr.’s plays have been performed throughout the U.S. and in Canada. He currently writes for KSVR’s Radio Theater Project audio-theatre series in Mount Vernon, Washington and is developing a musical based on the life of the infamous Dr. H. H. Holmes.

Ellison doesn’t need anybody, or so he thinks. He just needs some sleep, but that stupid dog won’t stop barking. When he’s forced to make contact–first with the dog, then with the kid who seems to be its owner–he finds out that maybe he’s been missing out on something important in “The Universal”.

RTP Live December 2013 – The Plot to Overthrow Christmas

Come out to the Studio@620 Monday, December 16 at 7pm, for the next live performance of the Radio Theatre Project.

santa-vs-satan22

This month’s show will feature:

The Plot to Overthrow Christmas by Norman Corwin, adapted by Richard Fish and directed by Rich Rice

A Christmas Special that Overrules a Horrendous Plot. “The Plot to Overthrow Christmas” is a 2008 retelling of a treasure from the golden age of radio by Norman Corwin and the CBS Columbia Workshop. Although it pre-dates Dr Seuss by many years, there certainly is a marked similarity of style. This 35 minute romp of rhyming verse introduces us to Nero violining in hell and co-opted into a plot to assassinate Santa Claus. Except Santa Claus is not all as it seems, and sometimes the cold can do more to warm the heart than the flames of hell…

Another Merry Christmas written and directed by Jim Wicker

Santa returns home from his annual trip around the world delivering gifts, but this year he lacks his usual enthusiasm. It seems the troubles of the world are weighing on Santa’s mind, leaving him less jolly than usual. Can Santa’s personal assistant, the elf Izzy, help him regain his Christmas spirit?

Noel!!  Noel!! The Continuing Adventures of Noel Berlin, Cabaret Detective written by Paul Wilborn and Matt Cowley.
