Arisia ’09: Red Shift, “Dance of the Duplicates”

IT'S GO TIME! THE POST-MERIDIAN RADIO PLAYERS return to Boston's largest sci-fi convention with another live episode of their original sci-fi comedy, which pays homage to the pulp sci-fi serials of the 1930s and 40s. Join our heroes—Red, Lumpy, Doc Alberts and Penny Parker, Girl Reporter—as they encounter double the trouble while in pursuit of a team of would-be Do-Gooders, only to encounter Red's arch-nemesis, Violet Spektra!
(The Arisia Ultraviolet Network's afternoon of radio drama begins at 2:00 PM with a special performance by the cast of the Parsec Award-nominated fantasy series, Second Shift, followed by our own Red Shift: Interplanetary Do-Gooder at 3:00 PM, and a panel discussion and Q&A session on Audio Theater production in New England at 4:00 PM.)
