Sounds Delicious Audio Theatre is a weekly podcast of 3 to 4 minute radio plays written and recorded before a live audience in Madison, Wisconsin. The plays are created over only two days by a supportive, 8-person ensemble. Everyone writes, everyone acts and no one can rest until the ON AIR light goes off. 

Sounds Delicious grows out of the experience of Are We Delicious? an ensemble of Madison performer-writers who write, rehearse and premiere an hour-long show of short plays in only seven days. Fresh, local, fun.

This episode includes the Overture from Are We Delicious? Musical Rebellion: http://www.growingshows.com/music/.  Composers/Musicians for Musical Rebellion were Andrew Rohn, Sean Michael Dargan, Charlie Cheney, and Biff Blumfumgagnge.

Detroit '67

Detroit '67

By Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Dana Pellebon

Winner of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History!

Dominique Morisseau takes the audience on a journey to 1967, in the city of Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the '67 riots.

By Jan Levine Thal
