Lawrence Radio Drama Featured on WPR Program

Lawrence University’s recent Theatre-of-the-Air taping production of the World War II radio drama “Strange Morning” will be among the shows featured Sunday, May 4 on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Old Time Radio Drama.” The program airs from 8-11 p.m. Sunday evenings.

Directed by Tim Troy, associate professor of theatre and drama, “Strange Morning” was taped during a live performance in mid-March in Lawrence’s Cloak Theatre. It recounts the differing reactions of wounded soldiers at an army hospital in March, 1945 to the news from a nurse that V-E Day is near.

The 25-minute drama, one of seven shows featured on Sunday’s program, is scheduled to air at approximately 10 p.m. and can be heard on WPR affiliates WLFM 91.1 FM and WRST 90.3 FM.
