RUNNING TO DETROIT – Comedy Drama / Full Cast

Meg and her Mom Sandra are heading to Detroit to do a little cross-border shopping, and take in a Tigers game. However, Sandra’s passport has expired and they are turned back at the border. An odd encounter on the Windsor waterfront leads them into a wild night of time-travel, rum-smuggling, a near-drowning, hijackers, customs officials thirsty for bribes and a chance encounter with controversial baseball legend Ty Cobb. The sound effects and music will take you from the present back to the 1920s; a time when ‘heading for the wild west’ meant sneaking into Michigan with a boatload of Canadian contraband.

Editorial Reviews

RUNNING TO DETROIT premiered on CFCO 92.9 FM/630 AM Chatham, Ontario on July 17, 2010.

“I had a chance to listen to the show last night – it’s wonderful!  I think it held together really well;… it just clipped along and was engaging throughout. I thought the transitions from scene to scene worked really well – it was always easy to tell where we were, and when a change had occurred, which is one of the toughest areas to solve in radio drama. The acting was great – loved the performances. I won’t centre anyone out in particular, though I really appreciated the nice rapport your Meg and Sandra had, and you certainly picked your Meg well! The others were all terrific too, with great humorous cameos. -Dave Carley Senior Writer/Script Editor – CBC Radio National Programming Toronto 

Well done David! I heard good things about the (radio) broadcast from Saturday afternoon (July 17th). –Lesley Grand, Director CK on the Edge Summer Arts Festival 2010 Committee
