Interesting Facts

common elements with Nightride, A Tour of the City


Please see guidelines on commentary and share your personal thoughts in this section.


This is one of the best radio play programs to introduce to newbies. Of the three different programs containing the same material (with Tour Of The City, A (Part 1) and Nightride), this is the the most humorous and upbeat. Absent is much of the husband and wife dialog, and the structured narrative that is apparent in A Tour of the City. Instead we've treated to a series of scenes which seem to be connected only by a common tone. Although some beautiful acting has been removed, I prefer this tighter edit.
