The long journey to bring the play "Radioman" to the stage hits a milestone this month when it premieres at Del Arte in Blue Lake January 10th. The play is based on the poetry of Eric Hollenbeck and his experiences as a soldier in Vietnam and as a veteran trying to come to grips with his return.

The North Coast Journal's Thad Greenson spoke with the KHSU Magazine about how the play came to be and the lucky dinner that brought it to the stage.

Radioman will play Jan. 10 through 12 and Jan. 17 through 19 at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. shows Jan. 13 and Jan. 20. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at www.radiomantheplay.org or by calling Dell'Arte's box office at 668-5663. The Hollenbecks encourage anyone purchasing a ticket to consider buying another to donate to a veteran.
