TALK RADIO

by Eric Bogosian

"A compelling work that draws you straight into the heart of its fringe world. It makes the call in show a metaphor for America's lost souls." -New York Newsday

Barry Champlain, Cleveland's controversial radio host, is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the lost souls who call into his show to sound off.

Now, Barry's show has the chance of going into national syndication and his producer is afraid that Barry will say something that will keep this from happening. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous.

Funny and moving, off beat, outrageous and totally entrancing, Talk Radio had a long run at New York's Public Theatre starring the author.

 

“Talk Radio” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.

Aside from her role as Director of Operations for Truthful Acting Studios, where she takes care of all business operations, Sam’s love for creativity and design has propelled her into her new passion as Artistic Designer for Theater On The Edge, where she is also one of the founding members. Sam has a love for transforming and repurposing anything and everything artistic that she can get her hands on, and her hyper-realistic sets from season one received much acclaim, including American Buffalo's 1970s junk shop, Tape's seedy Motel 6 room, the Superior Donuts shop and a 1989 North Philadelphia row-house for the critically acclaimed Orphans. She is grateful to be a part of such a creative team and working alongside her husband Marco. She also has a huge love for owls and unicorns (not relevant but worthy of mentioning).
