Funded in part by a 2017 Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council and the generous support of KBOO Radio and Podiant Hosting, FOUR MONDAYS is an original 4-act radio play written and produced by Sunny Bleckinger that takes place over the course of four Mondays at the last saltwater pool in 1980’s San Francisco.

Brief Synopsis (with mild spoilers!): The Crystal Plunge, last saltwater pool in 1980s San Francisco, is shrouded in steam from broken, hissing radiators. Swimmers and staff arrive to escape the constant rain and car crashes outside, to confront their personal mysteries in the murky stillness of the pool. Samuel the lifeguard pines for Anjelica, who used to spend every Monday night reading in one of the deck chairs, but has suddenly stopped showing up. Edna busies herself with crossword puzzles and aerobics, a routine she began twelve years ago to delay the onset of dementia, though she has since forgotten this and now continues out of habit. Marty sees everything but nobody listens to her, so she holds her breath underwater, attempting to emotionally reunite with her twin sister who passed away when she was young. Shannon the pool clerk luxuriates between a space heater and a fan, greeting everyone with cool professional cheer, while casually doing little about the clothing being stolen from the locker rooms. And Kasper, the newest swimmer at the pool who loves puzzles but has a glaring lack of skill for solving them, stumbles over a box of secrets in the boiler room that just may solve every mystery at The Crystal Plunge.

Starring Lorraine Bahr, Sunny Bleckinger, Keia Booker, Kurt Conroyd, Monica Dailey and Adam Randall. Music by Andy Rayborn’s Paper Gates, and casting by Dainichia Noreault.
