Brian d'Eon's Audio Drama
Starting in 2000, with the creation of Kootenay Co-op Radio, I began writing, producing and performing in original and classic radio plays. And such fun it was! Here's a list of what CORVUS PRODUCTIONS has produced so far:
THE GREAT FARINI Blondin & Farini compete for acclaim while walking across the Niagara Gorge on a tightrope.
THE NON-RESIDENT A meeting with a Martian in the Minneapolis airport.
UNCOMMON SENSE Father & son pick up a strange hitchhiker on a bitterly cold prairie highway.
BLACK OUT Everything that can go wrong, does go wrong, in a production of Julius Caesar.
TRIPLE, TRIPLE A no-holds barred game of Scrabble.
HARVESTING EDEN A plea for organic foods!
THE HYPERBOREANS An offer of immortality on a Pacific island.
SIRENS An avalanche and strange forces on a mountain pass.
407 ARACHNE Astronauts returning from Mars get stranded while visiting an asteroid.
THE DEVINE COMEDY A trip to Hell in support of Community Radio.
ROCKET SCIENCE The life and times of Wernher von Braun.
THE CHAT Radio-astronomers pick up a signal from an angel.
UP THE RIVER Alien abduction while canoeing.
and adaptations of such timeless classics as:
OEDIPUS REX, MEDEA, ELECTRA, MACBETH, MUCH ADO & THE TEMPEST
UNCOMMON SENSE a father & son pick up a strange hitchhiker on a bitterly cold prairie highway... A piece of Canadiana, eh?
This drama also was produced for Kootenay Co-op Radio's "The Narrative Voice" in 2001--a golden year. The sun was near the peak of its 11.6 year sunspot cycle, a moment when the Northern Lights were occurring frequently. Almost the entire drama takes place inside a car--hence the constant hum of an internal combustion engine in the background.
The Narrative Voice was an hour long spot but my audio dramas seldom ran that long so some preamble was often required. In this case, I give a short historical/scientific account of what the Aurora Borealis actually is. Then comes the drama. For a limited time, listen to both the preamble and the play in their entirety,
featuring Aaron Banfield as Frank, Susie O'Donnell as Fiona, Brian d'Eon as Wayne, David Edgington as the Station Attendant, and David also in the role of Radio DJ along with the famous THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH. That's right, Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch, when he was a mere etheral radio voice... those were the days.
