The Gunston Players Present: Vintage Hitchcock - A Live Radio Play, April 23, 24, 25

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. Featuring The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927), The 39 Steps, and Sabotage, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials that recreate a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.
