Description: 

The Word Players perform this play for radio written especially for the Word Players by American playwright Kenneth Lillquist. The story is a love affair, told with voices of Light and Darkness. Cast includes Gil Jardine, Sherry Pockell, and Edgar Walker as the Voices of Light; and David Haight and Ann Rivers as the Voices of Darkness. Directed by Baird Searles, technical production by Barry Singer. Baird Searles introduces the piece, stating that, "The Word Players are attempting to create a form for radio dependent on nothing but the human voice."

Technical notes:

The recording is slightly over-saturated throughout. The sustains of the single piano notes seem to waver in pitch.

This recording was formerly cataloged as BB3818.15.
