Radio Play: "Candid Criticism," by Brad Buchanan

Jan 1, 2015

In this edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre, we bring you an original production called "Candid Criticism," written by our own Brad Buchanan. Brad has done many of the script adaptations for the radio show over the past few years, and every now and then, he comes up with an original script--something never performed before. 

Now, we bring you the premiere of "Candid Criticism," a mixed-up tale of romance, intrigue, and a touch of silliness, for those who like that sort of thing.

Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theater.

This time, we bring you something a bit different from our normal classic stories -- an original script by our own Brad Buchanan called "Time Stands Still." Brad has done the majority of the adaptations for the radio show over the past couple years, but in this case, he decided to bring you a new story, never before performed.

We hope you enjoy this original production of "Time Stands Still." 

 Sit back, relax and listen here:
