Van Choc Straw by Mark Dunn

Fri. 9/19: A rebroadcast of an original radio play by Albuquerque playwright Mark Dunn, produced by Camino Real Productions and premiered on KUNM's Radio Theatre in 2009.

An elderly woman, Althea, is selling her home to move in with her sister for health reasons. When a young man, Leif, comes to look at the house they find a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in the basement and, joined by a neighbor and later by Leif's wife, they stay up all night in order to finish the puzzle. Through the course of the night, as the image in the puzzle slowly reveals itself, so do their lives, and by morning the gaps have been filled in and a new future emerges for all of them. Starring Jean Effron as Althea with Lou Clark, Joel Miller, Ninette Mordaunt, and Julie Nagle.
