BWW Review: WRAITH RADIO is a Visceral, Intimate Sharing of Last Moments
by Lacey Cannon Gonzales - Nov 17, 2016

WRAITH RADIO is the latest offering from Bottle Alley Theatre Company. An original script by writer and Bottle Alley artistic director, Chris Fontanes, WRAITH RADIO was immediately intriguing due to its premise. Two wounded soldiers barricaded in a small, windowless room face certain demise or perhaps are already dead.  They broadcast their final moments hoping in vain to reach their fellow comrades. Time isn't linear in this reality and the women cannot be sure if what they're seeing is in fact happening. Is it their minds playing tricks on them or have the ghosts of their pasts come to haunt them in their final hours? Intricacies of the plot make further explanation impossible without giving away this play's secrets. (more...)
