The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre (The Gamm) will present the world premiere of Radio Free Emerson by Brown University graduate Paul Grellong. Set in Rhode Island, The Gamms' first-ever commission is "a raw, complex and often hilarious examination of the naked truth and its consequences," state press notes.

"A young man returns to Rhode Island to take the reins of his family's radio station following a solitary stint in Maine . Armed with his rising star power as a talk show host and a dubious understanding of American transcendentalist philosophy, he dispenses self-serving self-help over the airwaves to the lovelorn, depressed and needy of his home state; and, in the process, cunningly exposes secrets and lies within his own family. The Gamm Theatre's first-ever commission, written by Brown University graduate Paul Grellong (staff writer for the hit TV series 'Law and Order: Special Victims Unit') and inspired by Henrik Ibsen's The Wild Duck, Radio Free Emerson is a raw, funny and complex examination of the naked truth and its consequences."

Radio Free Emerson runs from May 17 through June 17 at The Gamm Theatre, 172 Exchange St., Pawtucket, RI.  Tickets are $19-$31, and all previews (May 17- 21) are only $19. Call 401-723-4266. Or purchase tickets at www.arttixri.com. More information can be found at www.gammtheatre.org.
