The Word from R4 – August 2016

R4-mgd-FB-1920x1080pxThe Most Dangerous Game adapted for Radio Drama by R4 was performed in August 2016.
First, on a Saturday morning at Taipei American School by invitation of the Middle School Library and sponsored by the PTA. Roughly 70 people came to witness our intrepid readers unfold the classic tale by Richard Connell.

A write up for the second performance of MDG is not available at this time, as I am urged to meet the e-news deadline. But come and hear Paul Batt and Pat Woods perform at the Red Room on Friday, September 2, as well as enjoy some truly “dangerous” games.

In August we met for ReadAloud – Dreamin’
As a group (taking turns) we read Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, which was originally delivered in August of 1963.
Individuals brought a variety of material to the table including: an original short story about an encounter with a spooky doll and a true story about two encounters (years apart) with a visible spirit.

Looking ahead to ReadAloud September – We’ll take as our theme “Playing for Change”
At Red Room we dedicate our September to the worldwide Playing for Change movement which raises money to build schools and fund music programs in the world’s poorest communities. How can we celebrate the PFC mission at our ReadAloud? Or have fun with the words: playing, change…?

“There is a certain satisfaction in voicing written words. We lift them off the page and let them out into the air. At the Red Room village we have created a space-within-the-space and we meet there to listen and to be heard.” -Ruth, Director R4
