Penfold Theatre Company presents The Theatre Guild on Air
From 1945 to 1963, the Theatre Guild on the Air brought Broadway plays to the American airwaves. Now from the Theatre Guild on the Air Collection at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas, these radio scripts get new life in a series of live, free readings hosted by Penfold
Performed in a live radio show format by local actors and foley sound artists, audiences will hear the original Broadway broadcasts given new life, featuring Shakespeare’s Macbeth (September 5), F. Scott Fitzgerald’s This Side of Paradise (September 19), and William Thackeray’s Vanity Fair (October 3).
Each series will host a post-show discussion with audience and actors.
