Mystery in the Air - starring Michael Veitch and Simon Oats

West Gippsland Arts Centre

Comedy legend Michael Veitch with Simon Oats revive the golden era of 1940’s radio drama – 50 voices + 100 sound effects = 2 very busy actors!

Take a couple of hilariously antiquated radio plays, add two somewhat over-stressed actors and you're ON THE AIR with 'Mystery in the Air!'  This is the show that transports audiences back to the style, the fashion and - let's face it - the sheer political incorrectness of the 1940s.  Of course, back in those days, such luxuries as a proper cast and a sound effects department were the norm, but in these economically stringent times, it's all down to just our boys - costumes, sound effects, scene changes, music, voices - they'll do the lot.  It's a big ask, and occasionally they might even succeed.  The results, say audiences, are hilarious!
