This week on Open Air, we raise the virtual curtain of Open Air’s Corona Radio Theater and reserve the entire stage for the Final Grand Finale of Tales of the Resistance, the San Francisco Mime Troupe’s summer series of original political comedy radio plays.
This final installment, in two parts, brings us through all of the tales so far, culminating in one hour-long adventure. Will the Resistance become a Revolution? Or will the fascist corporate overlords maintain their control over the workers?
And: will Jade be able to take down Jamazon.com? Will Susie deliver the key that could cure Covid-19? Will Primo shine a light on the true darkness? Will Greg and Clya discover their true calling in this world?
Find out in Part One: The Beginning of the End; and in Part Two: The End of the Beginning…
