Flame Puppy: A Play for Voices
Written and directed by Mike Geither

A PodPlay recorded live by Cleveland Radio Players.

A beatnik finds peace through visions of a mythic turkey. A legless lout survives a ruthless drug dealer and rises to fame by manufacturing trailer hitches. The origin of the human body is recounted by two friendly anthropologists. And to bring them all together – a house-sized puppy made entirely of flame.
