THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY

Copresented by Ghoulish Delights and Park Square Theatre
Boss Thrust Stage

Join The Society for two of the best episodes from the golden age of radio, performed in the style of an old-time radio broadcast, including original announcements, commercials and sound effects!

For their first night in residence, January 20, The Society will present The Best of Old-Time Radio with two legendary thrillers. “Sorry, Wrong Number,” from Suspense, was first broadcast May 25, 1943. Lucille Fletcher’s famous radio play tells the story of a woman confined to her bed who overhears two men plotting a murder. No less an authority than Orson Welles called it “the greatest single radio script ever written.” In “Three Skeleton Key,” three lighthouse keepers battle a horde of rats off the coast of French Guiana in the classic story from French writer George Toudouze. First broadcast on Escape  November 15, 1949, the show’s popularity led to multiple radio productions, famously starring Vincent Price.
