This weekend: Gender-Swapped Star Trek; upcoming: Murders and Scandals

This Friday at 8pm and Saturday at 2pm and 8pm, we’ll be reprising our Arisia performance of our gender-swapped interpretation of the clasisc Star Trek episode, “The Naked Time”. This is an unticketed free event (although we gladly accept donations) and reservations are not required, but if you’d like to let us know you’re coming the event page has a link to a reservation form. Note that this event is at Unity Somerville rather than Responsible Grace.

And next month between the 14th and 22d (at Responsible Grace Church) we’ll be presenting our summer mysteries for 2017, featuring original adaptations for radio-drama of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale “A Scandal in Bohemia” and a gender-swapped version of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, considered by some the first modern detective story. You can buy tickets in advance or make a reservation on our tickets page. (The performance on Thursday, June 20th, is a pay-what-you-can performance.)

Auditions for "Murders and Scandals"

We are delighted to announce that we are looking for voice actors, Foley artists, and crew for our upcoming summer mystery show, Murders and Scandals: Poe and Doyle, featuring original adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s “A Scandal in Bohemia” featuring Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allan Poe’s “the Murders in the Rue Morgue” — the latter gender-swapped and featuring Charolotte Dupin.

PMRP’s “The Four Chaplains” now available!

In 1943, during World War II, four US Army chaplains aboard the SS Dorchester sacrificed their lives saving others as the ship sank. PMRP has retold their story in an original radio-drama adaptation by Chris Lockeardt, and our recording is now available for purchase at CD Baby. (Audio downloads are available now; a CD is forthcoming.) You can also listen to a trailer or view or download the program brochure from our Four Chaplains project page. (You can also learn more about the Four Chaplains and the Dorchester’s sinking by a German U-boat on Wikipedia.)
