Body snatchers, unsolved murders, and a whole new take on hell: that’s just a taste of what you’ll find this March when EVENING BROADCASTS hits the Players’ Ring stage. The show pays tribute to the classic storytelling of The Twilight Zone and the radio shows of the 1940s with a collection of fabulously weird shorts. Learn Adolf Hitler’s bizarre “true” fate, meet a time-traveling Secret Service agent, and find out what happens when an air traffic controller receives an impossible distress call. With tales ranging from the eerily uncanny to the outrageously funny, it promises to be a seriously entertaining night out.
Some seacoast theater-lovers might recognize the name: EVENING BROADCASTS has had two previous incarnations during the Players’ Ring’s Late Night summer series. This will be the first time the franchise takes to the main stage, and it does so with six new plays from some of the region’s top writers: Michael Kimball (Best Enemies, Ghosts of Ocean House), G. Matthew Gaskell (Sharp Dressed Men, All The Rage), and Jacquelyn Benson (Interference, Crush Depth). Manning the helm is Dan Stowell, director of last year’s wildly successful production of Twelve Angry Men.
The cast combines award-winning veterans with some exciting newcomers to the Portsmouth scene: Pam Battin-Sacks, Jacquelyn Benson, Robert Carroll, G. Matthew Gaskell, Todd Hunter, Julie McConchie, Matthew Schofield and Dan Stowell.
