Flash Radio Theatre -- The Morning Glory Stories
Updated: Jan 16
Is there anything more tedious than a playwright expounding upon his own work? Yet here we are. I’ll keep it brief and do my best not to sound too much up my own ass.
Over the Labor Day Weekend of 2019, twenty actors and musicians brought their passion, talent and intellect into a corporate conference room and generated the raw material that took the next four months to shape into this online theatre experience. These six short radio plays tell the story of the women of a fictitious small town on the prairie as they face the challenges of the Great Depression and prepare for the cultural and political upheaval of the second world war.
We’ll be releasing these recordings on a semi-weekly basis throughout January of 2020. They will be available wherever major podcasts can be found or by clicking Flash Radio Theatre, where you can also catch up on the first season.
And as a bonus, there’ll be tantalizing blog posts talking about the podseries-making process!
I think I can speak for everyone involved when I say we hope you enjoy The Morning Glory Stories and thank you for giving us a listen.
