The Mad Horse Theatre Company and FinalRune Productions will present a night of BEAN SUPPER and LIVE RADIO DRAMA on Saturday, February 27, at Mad Horse headquarters, 24 Mosher St, South Portland, ME (Map).

The evening, running from 5-7PM (show at 6), promises the fare of a traditional New England bean supper followed by a series of plays performed in the style of old time radio of the 40s and 50s.

Programming will be a mix of new and old, featuring a riff on the classic Sorry, Wrong Number (With Christine Marshall returning as Mrs. Stevenson) entitled “Sorry, Wrong Cell Phone” and Waiting for a Window, written by FinalRune’s director Fred Greenhalgh, and winner of the 2008 Gold Ogle Award for fantasy audio drama.

Originally recorded on-location in South Portland and other locations in the Greater Portland area, Waiting for a Window has been revised to take advantage of live performance.

Dubbed a “nautical version of Waiting for Godot” by the SFF Audio blog, Window tells the story of Norman, a waylaid sailor who washes up on a strange island where no one ever wants to leave.

Admission is by donation, with a suggested donation of $10 at the door. Seating is first-come, first-serve, with a capacity of 50.
