The Voice of the Prairie
|Maria Giere Marquis and Robert Sean Campbell|
“The world is a strange world, isn’t it, where wooden boxes can pull ghosts out of the sky.” And in the 1923 world of John Olive’s The Voice of the Prairie,” these radio boxes provide a wonderful medium to relate a nostalgic story chocked full of many other tales of love, family, and adventure. On the tiny, intimate stage of Dragon Productions Theatre Company, the art of storytelling becomes close, personal, and totally engaging as three skilled actors bring to life more than a dozen, somewhat quirky characters with monologues and dialogues so rich that it is easy just to close one’s eyes and revel in the listening – just like in the days of radio’s prime.
