* World Premiere

The Voice of the Prairie (1988)
ACT concludes its 1988 Mainstage Season with John Olive’s tale of the early days of radio— The Voice of the Prairie. The “voice” belongs to Davey Quinn, who, in the early days of this century, tells stories on the radio, recounting his youthful adventures. Playwright Olive has written a story which beckons the theatre audience to remember a more innocent, yet ambitious time when radio opened up the world of imagination to the listening audience and made overnight sensations of its stars.

The play will be directed by David Ira Goldstein, who staged ACT’s world premiere production of God's Country earlier this season, as well as last season’s highly acclaimed production of Glengarry Glen Ross.
