“WHERE AND WHEN?”

Posted: June 22, 2022

Written by seasoned playwrights Andie Arthur and David Loehr. “Where or when?” will consist of two separate, interconnecting audio dramas. In it we follow the story of Olivia, a woman who is simultaneously living both as an under-the-radar lesbian in an interracial relationship in Miami in the 1930s and living with a husband who is an archivist in 2022. How can she be in both times at once? What will happen if time rights itself? And how can one woman reconcile that she’s in love with two different people in two different times?

Loehr’s audio drama will be from the point of view of her husband and Arthur’s audio drama will be from the point of view of Olivia and Jess, her girlfriend. Each part will be six podcast episodes, with the project being 12 podcast episodes. All episodes will be released by the Incomparable Radio Theater and live performances of Andie Arthur’s section will take place in September during Bisexual Awareness Week.
