Festival Details - "New Jersey Theatre Alliance's The Stages Festival presents East Lynne Theater Company 'Sherlock Holmes' Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle' Radio Play"...
"The question is the sequence of events leading from the jewel-case at one end, to the stomach of a goose at the other." Sherlock Holmes speaks to Dr. Watson as they begin an investigation that might save an innocent man from prison.
East Lynne Theater Company invites you to be part of the "radio audience" when they perform this famous mystery with live sound effects and commercials, and actors portraying several roles to make the tale come to life. Before television and the Internet, people sat eagerly by the radio to hear the latest dramas, comedies, and news. Many radio shows were performed in front of live audiences at the same time they were sent across the "airways."
This radio-style production is based on one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's personal favorites and his play The Stoner Case, adapted by Craig Wichman, with the permission of Dame Jean Conan Doyle. Craig is the Founder and Producer of Quicksilver Radio Theater. His script received the National Federation of Community Broadcasters' "Gold Reel" for Radio Drama Award.
This event is part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival, the state's largest annual theatre festival that provides free and discounted theatre events for all ages throughout the month of March.
