Westport Country Playhouse heads back to the future with its Radio Theater, a free broadcast series in partnership with WSHU Public Radio. On Saturday, July 10, it will present the new audio play “Special Delivery” at 1:06 p.m. (following a news update at top of the hour), with a rebroadcast on Sunday, July 11, at 4:06 p.m.
Written by Shay Youngblood, “Special Delivery” is about an art courier tasked with delivering not only a strange piece of art but also an angry 12-year-old boy to the home of an uncle he’s never met – all during a raging thunderstorm. The pair’s destination is an isolated farmhouse that turns out to be full of surprises just like the ones found in the boy’s favorite, late-night horror movies. Humor and suspense meet in this family-friendly radio play about discovering your true gifts.
Radio station frequencies and locations are listed at wshu.org. “Special Delivery” will also be accessible on the playhouse’s website (westportplayhouse.org) from Monday, July 12 through Aug. 1.
