This week we visit 19th century France in English – and French! – through a skilled alliance of Chatterbox Audio Theater and Rhodes College. The adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s classic short story tells the story of Mathilde, who dreams of mingling with high society. When her husband secures an invitation to a ball, she finally gets the opportunity to live out that dream. But her taste of privilege — and the borrowed necklace that enables her to look the part — come at an enormous cost.
News! Chatterbox Audio Theater also has an Oct 5 show with WERU radio legend Ira Glass. Details and tickets
