VINTAGE HITCHCOCK: A LIVE RADIO PLAY
By Joe Landry
Directed by Craig Hall
"It's film re-imagined as radio and transformed into live theatre. Landry's ode to The Master of Suspense is perfect for the whole family."
- Craig Hall, Artistic Director
You will be transported to an era when radio was king with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a 40's style radio broadcast complete with vintage commercials, live Foley (sound effects) and musical underscoring. Sit back and enjoy the fun, nostalgia, and thrills through the re-telling of three of the master of suspense's earliest films: The Lodger, Sabotage, and The 39 Steps.

Vertigo's Vintage Hitchcock radio play booming good fun
"The audience experiences each story as if they are behind the scenes inside the radio studio, where the illusions of radio theatre are laid bare."
"You donít appreciate great voices on actors until you find yourself in a theatre filled with them, which is exactly what Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play offers Calgary holiday audiences, in a show a little bit lighter on suspense, but longer on enjoyment."
