In less than four years on the San Francisco Bay Area theatre circuit, after breathing new life into radio classics like 'The Shadow' in 2015, followed by the staging of 'Slay Bells Ring (Are you listening?),' four comedic original one-acts which played to sold out houses at the Hotel Petaluma in 2016, the Petaluma Radio Players, the North Bay's most eclectic and energized radio theatre company, are continuing to churn out a cornucopia of radio plays including vintage dramas like 'One Way Passage' (1932) and 'Trifles' (1916), and modern fare like the tear-jerking 'The Next Move' and in-stitches comedic noir parody, 'Story: A Detective Story.'

Well, the comic timing and irony in the next two scenes is likely to kill yo...
