Doc White (Vic)
Deluxe Old Time Radio Hour
Left-wing firebrand radio host Harry Harper, regularly pillories the close held beliefs of the Right – family values, church, religion, big business and the free market – via his radio show The Deluxe Old Time Radio Hour.
The show comes out of local radio station 3LW and is produced by April Ryan who is having misgivings about Harry’s style and the threat to their safety it represents. The show is broadcast in front of a live studio audience. Tonight’s theme is religion. Ten minutes in, something goes horribly wrong and April’s misgivings prove to be well-founded as she and Harry engage in a desperate battle for survival.
Doc White’s play is a provocative look at the consequences of polarisation of thought in the age of celebrity, social media and constant news cycle.
