Barry Champlain is fueled by sarcasm and put-downs. Don't get on his wrong side, or you'll hear his mouth run a mile a
minute, cutting you down and picking at every one of your most smarting insecurities. Considering his caustic personality,
he's a perfect fit for talk radio. But having his own show could result in him taking his last breath.
Talk Radio is a drama by Eric Bogosian, who won a Pulitzer Prize for this story about a man who becomes a media hero,
only to attract the worst kinds of critics. Bogosian's Champlain is a Jewish character who isn't afraid to speak his mind,
and when that means provoking Neo-Nazis, it results in more than just some angry calls. Get some Talk

Champlain vents his opinions, his philosophies and his emotions over the air. But is he also giving his listeners a piece
of his soul? His wife seems to think so, as the radio show begins to drive them apart. This complex and introspective play
will ask questions about the kinds of people who are driven to pound their two cents into your head. Buy theater
