Christmas stories on public radio this weekend

Trinity Rep will continue its third season of Trinity Rep Radio Theater, created in partnership with WRNI, a service of Rhode Island Public Radio. Hosted by WRNI's Morning Edition Host Bob Seay, the next installment of the show is entitled The Holidays, and will air the weekend of Dec. 5 to 7.

The December episode features the talents of resident company actors Angela Brazil, William Damkoehler, Janice Duclos, and Joe Wilson Jr., alongside artistic director Curt Columbus. The actors will be reading "The Loudest Voice," by Grace Paley, "Santa's Children," by Italo Calvino and "The Annual Crisis of Love," by Loudon Wainwright.

WRNI General Manager Joe O'Connor praised Trinity Rep Radio Theater as "a magical hour that feels timeless, with performances that entertain and illuminate." O'Connor says the show is "a smoothly intertwined mix of conversation and context resulting in remarkable storytelling - as if you had the finest actors and their director around your kitchen table."

Trinity Rep Radio Theater will broadcast on WRNI 1290AM Providence, 1230AM Westerly, and 102.7FM Narragansett on Friday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 6, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 7, at 11 a.m. Free podcast subscriptions are also available online at www.wrni.org.
