Willy Beau Dilly
by Jayme McGhan
A world premiere radio play for Summer 2020.
Directed by Carl Lindberg
Willy Beau Dilly will be released in four parts as an audio only experience. Like a podcast serial. McGhan's charming characters and intricately woven plot address class, culture, and love with a humorous touch. You won't regret journeying with the play's unlikely hero as he simply tries to do the right thing in the disparate economic climate of the 1890's Midwest. Release dates to be announced soon.
