Radio play: Meredith Nicholson's 'The Madness of May' (Part 1)

Apr 18, 2014

Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. In keeping with our tradition of bringing you classic stories in an audio format, this week's presentation is based on a wonderful short story by Meredith Nicholson entitled, "The Madness of May." 

It is a story of mystery and comedy, and general larking about -- a story of how spring can bring out a little bit of crazy in all of us. But we're going to keep you in suspense; this episode is only part one. You'll have to come back next week to hear the rest of the tale.
