The radio station at Seattle Pacific University produced my short piece “The Viking Funeral of Harold Olafson” as a radio play on April 16, 2013.
The audio is just now becoming available.
First, the good news: Falcon Radio Theatre at KSPU in Seattle has produced some more of my scripts as radio plays. Most recently, on May 21, the one-act “The Life List” and the shorter piece, “Zucchini Are Plotting to Take Over the World.”
They join a long list of other pieces of mine that the station has done this year.
Even better, the station has now made the audio available. You can find the archives page here.
Here’s a recap (all these are 5-minute or less pieces unless otherwise noted):
* April 2: “Cat and Dog”
* April 9: “Catch of the Day” (one-act) and “Big Time College Chemistry” and “The Monkey Rodeo.”
* April 16:“Damsel Not in Distress” and “The Viking Funeral of Harold Olalfson.”
* April 23: “The Last Day of School”
There might be some others there that I’ve missed; if so, I’ll update.
The bad news: Alas, Falcon Radio Theatre is going off the air. This is at a college station and the students involved are moving on. What a great ride while it lasted!
I learned this week that two of my short scripts (five minutes or less) will be produced in June as part of the Asphalt Jungle Shorts festival in Kitchener, Ontario.
This is a unique festival, staged by Flush Ink Productions, in which all the productions are site-specific. I gather that patrons buy a ticket and then are escorted on a walking tour of downtown Kitchener, where they encounter pieces happening . . . on sidewalks . . . on park benches . . . in coffee shops . . .or in bars.
My two pieces in this festival (which happens June 6-15) are “Pandora and Schrodinger: What’s in The Box?” and “Requiem for a Buzzard.” I’m guessing the first one is a park bench piece and the other might be a sidewalk piece. (Descriptions are below.)
I love the idea for this festival; I only wish I could be there to see in action! I previously had a piece (“A Nice, Relaxing Cup of Tea”) in the 2009 installment.
Meanwhile, Falcon Radio Theatre at KSPU in Seattle continues to produce some of my work as radio plays.
On April 16, the station (affiliated with Seattle Pacific University) produced “Damsel Not in Distress” and “The Viking Funeral of Harold Olalfson.”
On April 23, it was “The Last Day of School.”
Here’s a description of each show, with a notation about previous productions (if any): Read the rest of this entry »
