During the Golden Age of Radio, imagination ruled the air waves.  With only voices and sound effects, stories and characters came to life. The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Sherlock Holmes and Superman were the popular characters of the day who crept into American homes each night. In each of these stylized and overly dramatic programs, the listener had to rely on their own imagination to bring all of the character to life.

Director Susan Picillo saw the vibrancy of this art form and has revived it in a contemporary way in, The Radio Plays. So, now, sit back and let yourself be swept away by the voices, the sounds, and most importantly, your own imagination.
