A Trifle Dead! - a radio theater production
Dateline: January 14, 1938 It was a bitterly cold night in January. It was the sort of night where only a fool would go out. Harry Hunsacker, would be-actor turned would-be detective, barely made it to millionaire industrialist Edward Stones house. Stone feared his life was in danger so he had hired Hunsacker as a bodyguard; it was a fatal mistake. Soon Harry, with the aid of his paid-by-the-hour assistant and friend Nigel Grouse, and Lt. Foster of the real police, is investigating Stones murder. The mansion is filled with suspectsSinclair, the butler always making coffee; Robert, the alcoholic good-for-nothing son; Pamela the strong-willed daughter; and the glamorous Helen Reevesa movie star and Edward Stones mistress. One thing is certainsomeone killed Edward Stone and with Harry Hunsacker on the case they might just get away with it! RadioVizion is an alternative technique devised by Pegasus Theatre for the presentation of the Living Black & White series of Harry Hunsacker adventures.
RadioVizion does not employ the trade-secret makeup but instead focuses on recreating the experience and glamour of being in a live radio studio of the 1930s and 1940s. Live sound effects, actors at period style live microphones, and costumes evocative of the era complete the effect.
Please note: this production will not be presented in Living Black & White but, rather, in dynamic RadioVizion to simulate the days of live radio theatre!
