    In The Wedding Pool, three single friends in unsatisfactory jobs decide to place a bet on who will marry first. The friends - waitress and wannabe dancer Sylvia, rock critic Miles and inventory manager Dave - open a joint account to which they each contribute $50 a month, the final sum to be collected by the first to tie the knot. But when Miles starts dating the bank teller who opens their account, the friends realize much more is at stake and are forced to consider their individual fears and failings.
     
    In Lena’s Car, a woman whose marriage has stalled reflects on how it got to that point, harkening back to her youth, when she was just a Young Girl in a Small Town Looking for Trouble. Picking over the memories of her adolescence, she attempts to figure out why she ended up in a disintegrating relationship and just when her life became like everyone else's.
     
    Hippies and Bolsheviks set in 1970s British Columbia, a hotbed of hippie idealism, is a comedy based on the big ideas of the long-haired revolution. Star stumbles home from a Led Zeppelin concert with a draft dodger.

As The Establishment gains more ground, three dropouts struggle to hold on to their ideals.

    Volume 5 of The Whistler! “I am the Whistler and I know many things, for I walk by night.” Haunting stories of fate, dramas of crime, deception, and manipulation building to a sudden and shocking denouement...and through it all, the sardonic, mocking laughter of The Whistler! One of radio’s most memorable thriller anthologies, the Whistler’s stories revolve around ordinary people, pushed by the pressures of daily life into taking drastic action. Or perhaps a sudden circumstance, an unexpected twist of life’s path, suddenly placed these protagonists on a road leading inexorably to their own destruction. Greed, lust, and perfidy of every kind figure in the plots—and when fate inevitably catches up with these unfortunate, driven souls, The Whistler is always ready, at the end, to see that the knife is properly twisted.

    John Barrymore was the black sheep of America's most illustrious acting family. Celebrated for his charisma and matinee idol looks, he was for awhile America's most popular actor. Famous for his stage roles in Richard III and Hamlet, he also made more than fifty films. But alcoholism soon dissipated his talents, and he became known more for his Falstaffian behavior and outrageous high jinx than for his art. In Barrymore, William Luce has adapted his acclaimed Broadway hit especially for audio in this stunning production.
