Stand • Episode 10 of the RADIO HOUR Series

by Matthew Ivan Bennett

Staged Radio Drama, Radio Broadcast, Fully-Staged Production, or Virtual Theatre.

What if the Pledge of Allegiance ended with “liberty and justice for all … citizens”? In the year 2050 — after California has seceded, and church and state bleed together — Agent Alicia Mora is approached by “Gilani,” a resistance spy with word of Mora’s estranged sister. Her sister has risen high in the American insurgency, is planning a large-scale attack, and wants to get Mora to a safe zone. But before Mora can make up her mind, she and the spy are cornered by immigration cops, and the spy kills them. On the run with a man she scarcely trusts, Mora must decide where her allegiance lies — with the flawed regime or the flawed resistance.

RADIO HOUR is a co-production between Salt Lake City’s Plan-B Theatre Company and the University of Utah’s Public Radio station KUER’s Radio West.
