It was great fun playing Alice Western in a little known one-act play from 1912 by Alfred Sutro, "The Bracelet." The reading was performed last Sunday with The Shaw Project/Instant Shakespeare on YouTube. Below is a screenshot of me with David Palmer Brown as my husband, Harvey:

DECEPTION, PARTS ONE & TWO

We had such a wonderful time recording my new psychological thriller audio play, DECEPTION for PROJECT MERCURY. I couldn't have asked for a better cast:

Jason O'Connell, Melissa Hurst, Russell Jordan, N'Kenge, Paul Page, Angela Pierce and yours truly. :)

Robert Laconi served as Associate Producer, Ed Matthew composed original music and SFX and Tom Camuso was our intrepid Sound Engineer.

New York City, 1916: Wealthy newlywed Cora Mack Slade is madly in love with her handsome husband, Doc. She ignores his hobby of researching communicable diseases and focuses only on making her marriage work. When deadly suspicions begin to swirl around her secretive spouse, Corry seems oblivious. Are her family's concerns about Doc unwarranted or is Corry's life in real danger?
