Want to get away from it all? Raconteur Radio's staged presentations are designed to free you from the four walls of today for an hour of thrilling suspense, brave deed, and rollicking derring-do!

2 PM, Sat. April 28 
Featuring Carlye Owens, Michael Jarmus, & Laurence Mintz 
With several attempts on his life having already taken place, Holmes asks Watson to accompany him on a roundabout Continental "holiday" designed to thwart the relentless pursuit of the Napoleon of crime himself, Professor Moriarty. The story, which was to be, as the title implies, Doyle's last, culminates with a fateful square off at "a dreadful cauldron of swirling water and seething foam" known as Reichenbach Falls. North Edison Branch Public Library. FREE!

7:30 PM, Sun. May 6 
Featuring Jane Smith, Caryle Owens, Laurence Mintz, & Michael Jarmus 
The lifeless body of struggling young Hollywood screenwriter Joe Gillis floats in the swimming pool of long-forgotten silent-film star Norma Desmond's palatial mansion on Sunset Boulevard, as Joe narrates, in flashback style, the story of his becoming Desmond's kept man and the events leading up to his own murder. The Old Franklin School. $10.

7:30 PM, Weds May 30 
Featuring Michael Jarmus, Laurence Mintz, & Carlyle Owens 
It's 1866 and a mysterious sea monster, theorized by some to be a giant narwhal, is sighted by several ships, one of which it almost sinks. A multi-national expedition is assembled to track down and destroy the menace. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and narrator of the story, is issued a last-minute invitation to join, along with master harpoonist Ned Land. What follows is the adventure of a lifetime! Metuchen Public Library. FREE!

6:30 PM, Fri. June 8 
Featuring Carlyle Owens, Laurence Mintz, Michael Jarmus, & Francesca Tedesci 
Set during World War II, the story focuses on Rick Blaine, a cyncial expatriate and a man torn between, in the words of one character, love and virtue. Rick must choose between his love for a woman named Ilsa and helping her Czech Resistance leader husband escape from the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis. Stage Left Restaurant (includes themed dinner & drinks).
