For your ears only!
2020 was a tough year for theatre-makers. We couldn’t perform our work for you onstage, but 3GT’s artists refused to be defeated! In honor of the company’s 2021 Tenth Anniversary, we collaborated on a unique project in lockdown: the first ever 3Girls Theatre Radio Play. Written “for your ears only” by a team of 3GT playwrights, and brought to air by a crew of talented audio artists, The Sins & Secrets of Tabard Lake is a "serial pandemic noir" that will definitely have you wondering whodunnit. That is, if you can stop laughing long enough!
1 Dead on Arrival
In the middle of COVID, six actors arrive at an isolated luxury mountain resort to rehearse a new script with playwright Allyce Singer. But before they can get started, things take a deadly turn.
4 The Girl Who Knew Too Much
The sin is envy and our wrathful stage manager is high on the list of suspects for Allyce's murder . So, could there be a better time for a roomful of ham-inclined actors to dive into a script built around a séance, an artist who only recently escaped a sanatorium and, well, a goose? Warning: there will be accents.
7 Bait and Switch
Saturday night at Tabard Lake Lodge. As the Company mounts the final scene in outer space, "pride goeth before a fall". . . literally. Champagne flows, music plays, the whole gang is on its worst behavior----and Chauncy's still hiding behind the bar. Whodunnit, already?!
8C Get a Clue!
Whodunnit behind door number 3 is the question in Episode 8c “Get a Clue” from LezWritesBTQ. Midnight hot tub assignations, claims it was the cook in the library or a maid with a screwdriver hanging out at the beehives get their moment, as does the parsing of the sexual innuendo inherent in the term "free spirit". Hot tip: would a chickens bear witness if fowl play was involved?
2 No Second Chances
In episode 2, an angry pilgrim, a lusty wench and a bunch of iambic pentameter walk into a bar … err, we mean an olde English tavern …what could possibly go wrong?
3 Out of Sight Out of Mind
Wherein our intrepid gumshoe monitors the action from a secret room hidden behind a one-way mirror in the bar, and the investigation takes an unexpected supernatural turn. But not before Chauncy shakes up a pair of old school Gimlets ( half London Dry Gin, half Rose's lime juice) to toast Phillip Marlowe with Nolan, the strangely familiar Director.
5 The Persistence of Memory
Tempers run high when scene 4 exposes Freddy's fevered, voracious sexual past for all to see. Did his gluttonous behavior plant the seeds for Allyce's demise? Simone's allergies blow up as Chauncy's investigation continues.
6 Knife in the Back
After a late night polishing off a bottle of single malt with Nolan , Chauncy ponders the sin of sloth. Meanwhile delusional back-stage antics and daggers-out bitchery reach a tipping point as the company rehearses scene 5. And what up with all those crazy accents?
