Come see two plays considered “the greatest audio dramas ever written”. But wait! We’re producing them entirely for the stage!
In Sorry, Wrong Number, we meet Mrs. Stephenson, a sickly woman restricted to bed with only a telephone to connect her to her 1943 New York community. When she overhears a murder plot on a crossed line, she races the clock to save an unknown woman from a date with death! Will she succeed? Can she get anyone to believe her? And why is her husband so late in coming home? Come find out!
In The Hitchhiker, young Ronald Adams sets out from 1941 Brooklyn for the sunny shores of California, but he can’t avoid seeing the same Hitchhiker over and over. Is it a trick of the mind, or has Adams entered a different, relentless roadside reality?
In our first live and in-person production since the pandemic, we present these two suspenseful plays, each masterfully focusing on the isolation each character must overcome to avoid their own bitter end
Trigger warnings: high suspense, strangulation, and existential angst.
Running time: 90 minutes including a brief intermission (where you can view our Art Gallery!)
