Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Run to the Border


PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
THE 1920‟S COME ALIVE AGAIN WITH THE SOUNDS OF RUM SMUGGLERS, HIJACKERS AND CUSTOMS OFFICIALS THIRSTY FOR BRIBES IN THE RADIO BROADCAST PREMIERE OF „RUNNING TO DETROIT‟
CHATHAM, Ontario Canada – July 12, 2010: Voices In The Wind – Audio Theatre and Country 92.9 FM / 630 AM CFCO are pleased to announce the radio broadcast premiere of „Running to Detroit‟ on Saturday July 17th at 1:00 PM on Country 92.9 FM / 630 AM CFCO and simulcast
live from their website.
David Farquhar, the Executive Producer of Voices In The Wind – Audio Theatre is delighted
that the radio broadcast premier of  “Running to Detroit‟ is part of the new CK on the edge Summer Arts Festival. The public is also invited to come and listen to the broadcast debut of “Running to Detroit‟ together with the cast at the William Street Cafe on Saturday 17th July 2010

@ 1:00 PM. The William Street Cafe is located near the corner of William and King Streets in downtown Chatham.
Farquhar says, “The radio drama revolves around Meg and her Mom Sandra who are heading to Detroit for a little cross border shopping and a Tigers game. But due to unforeseen circumstances
they are turned back at the border. An odd encounter on the Windsor waterfront leads them into a wild night of time-travel; rum-smuggling; a near-drowning; hijackers; customs officials thirsty for bribes and a chance encounter with controversial baseball legend Ty Cobb. The sound effects and music will take the listeners back from 2010 to the 1920‟s, a time when heading for the Wild West meant sneaking into Michigan with a boatload of Canadian contraband!”
Farquhar notes there are references in the radio drama to Chatham, Windsor and Detroit so the
show will appeal to listeners on both sides of the border.

“Running to Detroit‟ was scripted by Dave Carley one of Canada’s leading Playwrights and Radio Dramatists especially for Voices In The Wind – Audio Theatre. Dave’s works have been produced across Canada and the United States, as well as many countries around the world.
“Running to Detroit” was directed by Joey Ouellette, Artistic Director of the Purple Theatre Company, Windsor.
The Actors include Noelle Dupuis, Michelle Mainwaring, Bob Telfer, Cheri Scratch-Lapain, Keith Burnett, Jason Gale and introducing Rachel Muharrem as Meg.
