Hello friends,

 

Classic Radio Road Show is proud to be co-producing a play in July 2024 in Orvieto, Italy in conjunction with Teatro Kamina. Our artistic director Duane Noch will be in the cast of “Colloquia,” a two person play by David Zarko based on true events that took place in Umbria, Italy in 1944.  

 

We are raising money to cover the production costs, and humbly ask for your support. A contribution of any size in US Dollars or Euros to Classic Radio Road Show, Inc. is greatly appreciated, and may be made using this link.  

 

For more information about the play and this event, please see below.

 

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming NJ performances!

It is the waning days of the Second World War. Allied forces are bombing targets in Italy. The retreating German army enacts a scorched earth policy. In the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto, its Italian bishop and the German commandant grapple with the grim realities the war’s conclusion brings to daily life. The city’s artistic and historic heritage are on the brink of annihilation. Cherished beliefs are thrown into doubt; shifting loyalties, changing ideals. The two men clash over their differences throughout the winter and spring of 1944, but when they discover a shared admiration for Bach, it inspires them to create a way to save Orvieto.

Colloquia (conversations between enemies) by David Zarko.

This June, a slate of events celebrates the 80th anniversary of Orvieto Città Aperta and it culminates with productions of Colloquia, in English and Italian. Classic Radio Road Show has been invited to bring its English language production of this powerful play to Teatro Kamina in Orvieto, Italy and to be one of the events commemorating the anniversary of the Open City declaration of 1944 that spared Orvieto from bombardment.

We hope you will consider making a contribution in any amount to help take up this extraordinary opportunity.

Adventures of the Thin Man:  All American Menace
and  Richard Diamond, Private Detective: Lonely Hearts 
                  

Thin Man starred Myrna Loy and William Powell, playing a detective couple with wit and sophistication.  The characters were based on the 1934 novel by Dashiell Hammett (Sam Spade, "The Maltese Falcon", you know!) 



Richard Diamond was created by Blake Edwards.  Diamond was a former NYC cop turned private eye and was the epitome of the noir, wise-cracking detective we've seen and loved in film and television and radio!
