Lakes Area Radio Theatre is proud to present two stories written by Alexandria Playwright Chuck Grussing. You have seen Chuck on stage at the Alexandria Area Arts Theatre most recently as Lerch in “Addams Family” and Lenny in “Of Mice and Men. Not only is Chuck an amazing actor, but he can write. What he writes is funny … very funny! His main characters are “Ray and Iver”. They run a Skelly fillin station back in the 1950’s.
“The Ominous Ornament”: Ray, Iver and Jigger team up to solve a decade old accidental death … but was it ? Listen as the East Side Skelly crew does more than pump gas, sell tires and repair cars. They also unwittingly, slam the door shut on what turns out to be murder. Mayor Ronnie and city clerk Hank join in the antics along with Dom, the TV repair shop proprietor.
“The Bashful Barrister”: Claude, the community’s only attorney, is leaving for the courthouse in Bixby. He stops at Ray and Iver’s for a fill, and well, that’s when things start to get interesting for the counselor. Lula needs a ride to Bixby, or does she? Find out how the court room trial ends and how the Lula courtship begins. Once again, Jigger and Freddie to the rescue in the case of “The Bashful Barrister”
