Radio T.B.S
(Trailer Park Broadcasting Scandals)
by Mark Landon Smith
Directed by Thomas Clark
February 2003

From Baker's Plays:

Radio hostesses and society doyennes Vesta Poteet Dixie Mandrell bring to you the comings and goings of the activities in and around The Luna Del Mar Manufactured Home Oasis and Monkey Empire -- very few of the monkeys are contagious. And what a jumpin' place this trailer park is. From the author of Faith County, Evening of Culture and A Dickens' Christmas Carol.

Thomas Clark, director, describes the show: This play is a light-hearted look at southern stereotypes from Elvis fanatics to religious fanatics, from beauty contestants to "the undesirable element". Although the primary focus is on humor, the play also has an underlying message about judging people by appearances. This combination of zany humor with a message makes this play worth seeing.

2003's "Season of Laughter" was dedicated to the memory of Elva Hansen. She will be greatly missed!
