Radio Plays for the AIRWAVES

Radio drama is a dramatized, purely acoustic performance. With no visual component, radio drama depends on dialogue, music, and sound effects to help the listener imagine the characters and story.

A Pro-am theatre project presented by Alex Read Theatre Performances Inc.

Don't change that dial

We would like to recognise the power of our minds to create imagery so powerful that we are moved to emotion.
On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre panicked millions of radio listeners with their inventive production of War of the Worlds. It’s the most famous radio drama of all time, and it made the news by pretending to be the news.

Coming soon...
