Talk Radio

(1988)
A Book by

 
"Your fear, your own lives, have become your entertainment." - Talk Radio

"More timely today than it was twenty years ago . . . Radio crackles with intensity." - Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News

"The most lacerating portrait of a human meltdown this side of a Francis Bacon painting. . . . This revival, like the original production, allows its star to grab an audience by the lapels and shake it into submission." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio - his breakthrough 1987 Public Theater hit that was made into a film by Oliver Stone - has been revived in a "mesmerizing" (Newsday) production on Broadway, with Liev Schreiber playing the role of the late-night shock jock that Bogosian himself originated. The drama is set in the studio of Cleveland's WTLK Radio over the course of Barry Champlain's two-hour broadcast, being scrutinized that night by producers with an interest in taking the show national, and fueled as always by coffee, cocaine, and Jack Daniel's. Barry's jousts with his unseen callers - ranging from a white supremacist to a woman obsessed with her garbage disposal - are peppered with insights into his character from his ex-deejay pal and his sometime girlfriend/producer, and punctuated with a transformative visit from an embodied voice.

Eric Bogosian is a writer and actor who over the last twenty years has authored five full-length plays and created six full-length solos for himself, including subUrbia; Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll; Pounding Nails in the Floor with My Forehead;and Drinking in America. He is the recipient of three OBIE Awards and a Drama Desk Award, and has toured throughout the United States and Europe.
