SPEAKING OF STORIES PRESENTS
SPEAKING OF SCI-FI
ZERO HOUR by Ray Bradbury
THE TIME MACHINE by H.G. Wells
FLASH GORDON
Directected by Maggie Mixsell

Stepping out of our usual format Speaking of Stories transforms Center Stage into a 1940s radio station to present Speaking of Sci-Fi, an evening of classic radio plays. You won't want to miss this evening of thrills, chills and, of course, a hero to save the day!

The year is 100,080 in H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. Falla and Dudley are thrust into the future in Dudley's time machine, to a world where beauty and terror live side by side. Will they escape the evil flesh eating Morlox and live to tell the tale, or was it all a dream? Listen closely as this timeless piece unfolds.

One of the most controversial plays of its time, we present Zero Hour by Ray Bradbury. This chilling episode reveals how Martians plan to infiltrate the world via a game called "invasion" with the help of planet earth's children! Ripe with imagination, the children gleefully accept the mission and methodically prepare for a time when they can help to rule the world; a time when there will be no more parents to tell them what to do; a time when they will have control! That time is five o'clock. That time is "zero hour." That time is now! Share the suspense with us.

Everyone loves a hero, and what better example, than Flash Gordon. We bring you not one, not two, but three installments of this legendary character's escapades in his quest to save the world.

These classic plays are brought to life through the talented voices of Faline England, Eric Davison, Megan Hickey, David Miller and Jason Uliasz (whose photos appear here in this order). The atmosphere of a live 40's radio broadcast will replace Speaking of Stories's usual format, complete with special effects provided by Chris Turner serving as our on-stage sound magician.
