Another performance - Oct 2nd

HECATE HILL: the audio play
by Bill Fountain

We're recording the voice-over for Hecate Hill. This will be a bit more like readers theatre than what we normally do. We're hoping to use this recording to finish an audio play based on a frightening one act play from author Bill Fountain.

We'll begin recording at 7:30pm on Monday October 2nd at the Arlington Museum of Art. More information will be on our website shortly.

Texas Radio Theater Company proudly presents a world premiere production written by local playwright Bill Fountain and directed by local director Bob White!

THE STORY: A group of cycling friends meet up for a reunion (and Bigfoot hunt) in a remote cabin in Southern Oklahoma. At the same time, not too far away, a group of hunters do the impossible and kill one of the creatures. Suddenly, not only does the world find out that the creatures really do exist, but they don't take kindly to one of their own being killed. An electromagnetic pulse shuts down the power all over the planet as our world is invaded by armies of angry creatures.

Meanwhile, out in the dark woods, a few friends fight to survive the night. Welcome back to the bottom of the food chain.

But is any of it really happening? Will the friends survive to find out the truth about Hecate Hill?

FACT OR FICTION? A recent rash of Bigfoot sightings and reports on the news all taking place in Oklahoma and Texas and within 50 miles of where Fountain set his fictional play? Life imitates art?

THE LOWDOWN: “HECATE HILL” promises to be an interesting afternoon of original radio theater. A One Act play, suitable for general audiences, about what happens when the things that go bump in the night decide to step out of the darkness. An incredible cast of actors from all over North Texas assembling for this radio drama experience!
