Three scripts produced on Viking Radio Theatre

In early 2013, Falcon Radio Theatre at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle (duh!) produced a bunch of my scripts as radio plays. You can find the audio versions of those in the “radio plays” section.

One of the students involved with that project moved on to Western Washington University, where he is now working with Viking Radio Theatre — and me!

This spring, three of my scripts were done as radio plays.

Episode One above features “God and the Devil Meet for a Business Lunch” and
“Somewhere Tonight, the Washington Senators Last Game Still Plays On.” Both run about ten minutes.

Episode Three, below, has the one-act “Occupations.”

OTHER PRODUCTIONS OF THESE SCRIPTS:
* “God and the Devil Meet for a Business Lunch” — radio play by Falcon Radio Theatre in Seattle, video by Homespun Productions in Sacramento and an old-fashioned staged-reading at the Lake Players in Virginia.

* “Somewhere Tonight, the Last Washington Senators’ Game Plays On” — radio play by Falcon Radio Theatre in Seattle.

* “Occupations” — radio play by Falcon Radio Theatre in Seattle.

Audio: Seven of my pieces on Falcon Radio Theatre

Falcon Radio Theatre at Seattle Pacific University ended its run on May 21, 2013 with a grand finale that included seven of my pieces.

Specifically:

* “The Liberal Arts Pirates”
* “Occupations”
* “Zucchini Are Planning to Take Over the World”
* “God and the Devil Meet for a Business Lunch”
* “If Cats Had Lawyers”
* “Damsel Not in Distress”

“Occupations” is a one-act; “God and the Devil” and the “Washington Senators” are ten-minute scripts; the rest weigh in at about five minutes.

The audio has just now gone online, and here it is.

Audio of “Catch of the Day” on Falcon Radio Theatre

The radio station at Seattle Pacific University produced my one-act “Catch of the Day” as a radio play on April 23, 2013.

The audio is just now becoming available.

On that same show, Falcon Radio Theatre also produced one of my five-minute scripts, “Zucchini Are Planning to Take Over the World.”

CATCH OF THE DAY
A nervous mother is preparing to entertain her daughter and the daughter’s new boyfriend. She’s eager for the match to succeed. She’s instructed her husband to pick up some fish on the way home for dinner; he mistakenly acquires a fugu, a type of fish prized as a delicacy in Japan — but which is also highly poisonous, if improperly prepared. Naturally, the woman succeeds in poisoning the daughter and her boyfriend — sending them into a trance. Comedy ensues, while the pair are frozen in position through part of the play. Cast: Two males, two females. Running time: 30 minutes.

Here’s a list of audio to some of the other pieces I had on Falcon Radio Theatre:

* “The Angel of Brooklyn” (one-act)
* “Lucy” (one-act)

* “God and the Devil Meet for a Business Lunch” (ten-minute script)
* “Somewhere Tonight, the Washington Senators’ Last Game Plays On” (ten-minute script)

* “Cat and Dog” (five-minute script)
* “If Cats Had Lawyers” (five-minute script)
* “The Last Day of School” (five-minute script)
* “The Liberal Arts Pirates” (five-minute script)
* “The Secret Lives of Goldfish: Breakout!” (five-minute script)
* “The Secret Lives of Goldfish: Pirates!” (five minute script)
* “The Viking Funeral of Harold Olafson” (five-minute script)

Falcon Radio Theatre also did my one-act, “Occupations,” but there doesn’t seem to be audio available of it.

Audio of “Lucy” and three other short scripts

The radio station at Seattle Pacific University produced a bunch of my scripts earlier this year as radio plays on Falcon Radio Theatre.

The audio is just now becoming available. Here’s probably the biggest night of all — Feb. 7, 2013, when it was an entire night of Yancey.

The headline piece was the one-act “Lucy,” but the show also included the ten-minute piece “Somewhere Tonight, The Washington Senators Last Game Still Plays On” and the shorter pieces “The Liberal Arts Pirates” and “The Secret Lives of Goldfish: Pirates!”

LUCY
The devil wants a book written about herself — yes, herself — so shekidnaps a writer and brings him to hell for an interview. She explains whyshe’s a necessary evil; he tries to get out of the deal. A comedy, with varioustopical references. Cast: Four, plus an off-stage voice. One female, two males, one non-gender, although probably works best as a male. Still, you have can fun casting females in the two male roles. The off- stage voice is female.
• First place, 18th Annual Henrico Theatre Company Playwriting Contest,
2003. (Out of 163 entries nationwide.)
• Produced by Henrico Theatre Company, Richmond, Va., February 2004.
* Produced by the Shakespeare Club, Bangor, Maine, February 2010.
* Produced by Falcon Radio Theatre, KSPU, Seattle Pacific University, February 7, 2013.

SOMEWHERE TONIGHT, THE WASHINGTON SENATORS LAST GAME PLAYS ON
The last game the Washington Senators played – in 1971 – ended in a forfeit, when fans ran out onto the field and one of them stole first base. Now, on the night before a new Washington baseball team takes the field in 2005, the man who stole that base is trying to return it, and gets arrested. He tries to explain to the cop why the base is haunted. Cast: Two males, envisioned as one white, one black. Running time: Ten minutes.
* Produced by Falcon Radio Theatre, KSPU, Seattle Pacific University, February 7, 2013.
