IT IS ALWAYS ALMOST UPON US
That it is. It is always almost upon us.
And that is the name of Mickle Maher’s latest play. A radio play starring Tony award winning actress Deanna Dunagan and Guy Massey written with the prompt of 16th Street Theater’s Season Fourteen theme: ARE WE ALIVE? The writers of Chicago’s MC-10 Playwrights’ Collective each are writing 10-minute audio plays under this theme. Mickle Maher’s IT IS ALWAYS ALMOST UPON US is Episode One in this ARE WE ALIVE series.
Released Thursday March 3 2021 in honor of Chicago’s Theater Week, Mickle Maher’s play is the story of Nora, the host of a South Michigan Community College radio program and her surprise call-in guest who is at a crossroads in his life.
