The Wireless Theatre Collection
Vol. 2Downloadable Audiobook - 2016
The award-winning and critically acclaimed Wireless Theatre Company strives to keep radio theater alive and well. From the hilarious to the terrifying, this diverse collection features ten Wireless Theatre productions in a single volume: * We Are Not the BBC by Susan Casanove, directed by Jack Bowman: Things start to look up for the members of an amateur dramatics society when a visiting celebrity steps in and plays the lead role. * We Are the BBC by Susan Casanove, directed by Jack Bowman: Rob Sterling Davies is on the crest of a wave -- and apparently Stephen Fry's new best friend. But all isn't quite as it seems. * No Cause for Alarm by Lester Barry is a silly play. It has no comment to make about the human condition, love in the twenty-first century, or the Iraq war. * Stage Fright by Lynn Howes, directed by Emma Taylor, charts the struggle for supremacy between three actors appearing in a play together. * The Mighty Carlins by Collin Doyle, directed by Paul Blinkhorn: On the anniversary of his wife's death, Leo Carlin and his two sons come together for their traditional night of sharing good and bad memories. * Blood and Stone by Marty Ross, directed by Mariele Runacre Temple: The ''Bloody Lady of Cachtice'' was bricked up in her own castle for murder. Why then does the young Katya want a job looking after the countess? * The St. Valentine's Day Murder directed by Peter Davis: It's Valentine's Day, but events turn less than romantic when one of the members of a dating site is murdered. * Laying Ghosts by Clare Reddaway, directed by Emily Wright: When Connie's beloved husband Jack dies, Connie hopes that her only son, Gary, will console her. Gary, however, has other plans. * Emails from Abroad by Julia Messenger and Shirley Mawer is a play based on travels abroad relayed by emails between the ingenuous first-time traveler and her disillusioned home-bound sister. * The Trial of Sherlock Holmes: Charged with endangering the public, Holmes is forced to relive some of his most bizarre cases.
