Description: 
Kid-­Simple: a radio play in the flesh is based on radio mystery shows popular in the early 20th century. Accompanied by a live foley artist, who produces narrative sounds live onstage, the play explores various ways in which we tell stories and how we rely on our senses to comprehend the world around us. The plot follows the adventures of Moll, a teenage prodigy and genius inventor, and the last boy virgin in 11th grade as they together try to recover Moll’s newly invented machine for hearing sounds that cannot be heard, after it is stolen by evil masterminds.
