The Story

When the century was younger and radio was just beginning, entrepreneurs were trying to make the magic of the airwaves work for them. This gentle play is about the storytelling of a farmer, the woman he tells his stories about, the man who keeps a radio station and the stories going, both for money and finally for the heart.
