Open Air: The Future of Audio Drama

Radio drama has been an integral part of the history of media since the inception of broadcasting in the early 20th century. Now, with new technologies and new forms of media engagement, this subtle and compelling form may be poised for a comeback. What is the future for audio drama? This question serves as the basis for a lively discussion on December 11, at 2:00 p.m., among artists working in a range of fields related to audio theatre.

Participants include playwrights Elana Greenfield and Mac Wellman; producer/directors Arthur Yorinks and Judith Kampfner; sound designer and director Darron West; actors Paul Hecht and Barbara Rosenblat, and philosopher Paul Kottman. Award-winning radio drama producer Sarah Montague moderates the discussion.

This free event presented by Eugene Lang College, in collaboration with the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WNYC and WQXR will be held in the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space of WNYC/WQXR, 44 Charlton Street.
