The five exciting dramas in AirPlay have all been featured on CBC Radio's Sunday Showcase and Monday Night Playhouse, proof that radio drama is thriving on Canada's public network. Lorre Jensen's The Mercy Quilt is a touchingly humorous portrait of a quartet of elderly native women who must deal with the memory lapses of one of their number-without causing her to lose face. Mourning Dove by Emil Sher is a highly-acclaimed drama based on a real-life mercy-killing, and gives unprecedented voice to the concerns of the disabled. In Stop Talking Like That, we fly from Thunder Bay to Australia's Ayer's Rock at the drop of a sound cue, in a wild outpouring from Judith Thompson's fantastic imagination. George F. Walker trains his satiric guns on the movie business in How to Make Love to an Actor?it's a wicket and very telling take on the big egos lurking behind the big screen. And Rachel Wyatt dramatizes a much-loved Canadian novel, Crackpot by Adele Wiseman, the story of a Winnipeg prostitute with a heart the size of the prairies.
