Back in 2004, rumors swirled about Zero Untitled’s radio play. Unfortunately, the show never quite got on the air, but now in 2010, we’re all systems go.  “The Unraveling” is a 1920’s styled murder-mystery in the form of a radio play – think “War of the Worlds” or “The Shadow.” The performance will basically be portrayed seriously, but due to the corny nature of the dialogue, it comes across as funny.  A comedic slideshow will accompany.


More than likely, a series of live performances will be in order instead of the traditional radio airing.  “The Unraveling” is an episodic trilogy; the episodes are: “The Rising”, “Things Thicken” and the finale “Surfacing.”

Performance dates were October 20-21 at 7:30 pm.
