The Philadelphia Story – a radio play

Experience the creation of a classic 1940s radio play, The Philadelphia Story. 

Based on the movie The Philadelphia Story, starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn, the play follows the fortunes of a Philadelphia socialite. She must decide which man she loves – her drunken ex-husband, her wealthy fiance, or the prying reporter who turns up on the scene.

Radio dramas were once the most popular form of entertainment and were usually broadcast as live performances. This event recreates the entire experience – from actors performing to sound effects such as footsteps and fist fights!
