WINGSPAN

by | Read by Grace Experience, K.K. Glick, Chris Bohjalian and a Full Cast

Poetry & Drama • 50 mins. • Unabridged • © 2019

Chatting about topics both professional and personal, two female flight attendants--played by Upright Citizens Brigade alumna K.K. Glick and newcomer Grace Experience--ready their passengers for another routine flight in this likable and witty one-act production. Sadly, just as the listener is beginning to enjoy the show, the author breaks in time after time reading unnecessary and intrusive stage directions such as, "Karen points to the seatbelt sign," immediately followed by the actor saying, "Sir, the seatbelt sign is illuminated." There is a tradition of reading stage directions in the theater workshop setting, but here the pace and performances are sorely marred by them. In audio drama good acting and writing don't need explanations--they are perfectly capable of telling a story just fine on their own. B.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
