The Post-Meridian Radio Players are proud to announce our Spring show, “Lest We Forget.” We’ll feature three stories of fighting injustice and standing up for what’s right!

We’ll reproduce two episodes of the classic 1940s radio series Lest We Forget: The American Dream, “Hey Cabbie” and “Blow That Whistle”, adapted by Liz Salazar and directed by Jay Sekora. In addition we’ll have an original adaptation of the World War II-era comic book action heroes The War Nurse and Her Commandos in “Double Deception”. “Double Deception” is written by Chris Chiampa and directed by Amy Bennett-Zendzian.
