Radio Man

a new play by Garrison Keillor

September 27–October 26, 2014

Join the celebration of A Prairie Home Companion’s 40th anniversary through a quirky and satiric journey into the memories of its creator. The “On Air” lights flash and the show begins. The host, played by Pearce Bunting (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), presides over a parade of singing groups, the private eye Guy Noir, the cowboys Dusty and Lefty, and the people of Lake Wobegon arguing about morality and a bag of frozen peas. The lines between imagination and reality are blurred as a young boy reminisces about his radio dreams, a producer chastises the host, and the stage manager somehow keeps the show rolling along. It’s a night of rollicking humor in the first full-length play written by America’s foremost storyteller and humorist.

Enjoyed by ages 12+
