What: Regis College Theatre Company’s fall production, Radio Stories

Before there was television or Internet, there was radio – at the height of its popularity between the two world wars. Regis College Theatre> Company’s fall production, Radio Stories, explores women’s evolving role in radio during the Roosevelt era. Radio Stories is written and directed by Wendy Lement, with contributions by Susan Zeiger and students in the fall 2007 Oral History and Performance course.

The college’s 4th Oral History and Performance project is a “live radio” performance, integrating the radio memories of interview subjects with the social fabric of the time. Set in a fictional radio station, with a live band, the play traces changes in radio programming, technology, and womens' roles as the country moves from the depths of the Depression into WWII.

Radio Stories will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 20, 21, 22 at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2:00 p.m., in the Eleanor Welch Casey Theatre, Fine Arts Center, Regis College, 235 Wellesley St., Weston.
