A Murder Mystery Double Bill (Ossman)

A new CD release is now available containing the assiduous, mysterious, and often miraculous collab work of David Ossman and Firesignbro Philip Proctor for the International Mystery Writer's Festival – Discovering New Mysteries. The first release in a possible series, A Murder Mystery Double Bill features two short stories adapted and directed by Ossman, "It Burns Me Up" by Ray Bradbury and "My Gal Sunday" by Mary Higgins Clark. Proctor plays the host and sets the tone with his direction of the walla chorus. Other cast members include Gary Sandy, Melinda Peterson, Richard Fish, Amy Walker, and, in fact, a full 25-person repertory cast, who performed in ten different scripts, four shows in rotation per day, for ten days straight, last June. Talk about your marathon run!
