The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

From Radio Play to Stage Play

theyflyThrough the years we’ve seen many adaptations from movies, stage, and novel form into the medium of audio drama. It’s rare to see the reverse, but Sam Wheeler from Bates College is taking Norman Corwin’s famous “They Fly through the Air with the Greatest of Ease” and adding stage directions and elements to contextualize to a stage play. In preparation, Mr. Wheeler read 25 scripts to get ready to bring the theatre of the mind to the theatre of the stage. Details can be found in Riley Hopkin’s article in The Bates Student.
