“Radio Ridiculous” is Orloff’s comic tribute to the serialized radio format of the 1930’s and 40’s featuring three self-contained segments spoofing classic radio drama from the period. “Sorry You’ve Got My Wrong Number”, a parody of radio suspense programs, “The Wacko Brothers”, a send-up reminiscent of the Marx Brothers/Abbot & Costello comedy teams, and “A Tale of Two Miserables”, a condensed classic mash-up of the works of Victor Hugo and Charles Dickens.
Orloff’s one-acts have had over 1700 productions on six of the seven continents, plus a staged reading in Antarctica. Seven of his one-acts have been published in the annual Best American Short Plays series.
“Radio Ridiculous” is to be presented as a live broadcast set in a 1940’s period radio studio, with actors playing over 70 vocal characters and a large array of studio sound effects. The cast includes Tom Crutchfield, Janet Geist-Moore, Barry Lew, Leigh Wilson, and Cleo Zani.
