Landmark Radio Theater presents the premiere of “Off the Rails,” an original play in the classic style of radio dramas from the Golden Age of broadcasting, performed live on stage at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater.
“Off the Rails” tells the story of seven strangers on a train from Port Washington on a winter night in 1942. Some are chasing new hopes, others are on the run from old troubles — and one is an enemy agent! When a blizzard imperils the train, sparks fly, dangers mount and dark secrets are revealed.
A cast of talented performers will give voice to the story’s array of vivid characters, with live music and sound effects created right on stage. The hourlong performance will also feature period-style station breaks between acts.
Landmark Radio Theater’s previous productions have been a hit with audiences, including radio-drama adaptations of the classic films “Stagecoach,” “Stage Door” and “The Man Who Came to Dinner,” and last year’s premiere of an original murder mystery, “Murder in Studio 2B.” Everyone is invited to get in on the fun this year with “Off the Rails.”
