VISUAL RADIO PLAYS

Jewel Theatre presents the first in our series of classic mystery/thriller radio plays produced exclusively for online viewing. We bring you a visual version of Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air where you are the studio audience watching the actors reading the script and creating multiple characters with their voice in front of the microphone. We’ve accompanied the actors with a unique visual landscape and the foley (sound) artist creating the sound effects, bringing you a distinctive storytelling experience. As we deal with the impact of COVID-19, we offer this online programming as our way of staying connected to our art, our artists and our audience.
We offer this first installment of our Radio Play Series free of charge. However, now more than ever we are relying on your donations to help us survive these months during which we are not able to perform live. We appreciate your support.

 

THE HITCH-HIKER

Ronald Adams is driving cross-country from Brooklyn to California. On the first day of his trip, in the rain, Ronald sees a mysterious man on the Brooklyn Bridge who seems to be waiting for a lift. As he proceeds on his journey, Ronald is haunted by the hitch-hiker in more ways than one.
