This year’s annual radio play event is “two for the price of none!” For 2019, BIFF brings you not one, but two sci-fi plays that date back to the Golden Age of Radio! From the X Minus One show of 1958 comes Knocked, a play that is best described by its opening lines, ” The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door”. And from the Lights Out series of 1933, Slurp! Goes the Amoeba by Wyllis Cooper, a spooky tale about a lab experiment that goes horrifically wrong. It’s tasty!
