NEW YORK - Oct. 30, 2020 - PRLog -- The English-Speaking Union of the United States (ESUUS), founded in 1920, continues its Centennial celebrations with a special online event on November 9, 2020 at 7:30 pm EST—an original Centennial Radio Play Mystery Comedy.

This is an old-fashioned radio play in the genre of the 1930's and 1940's Sam Spade detective radio plays but with a modern-day twist. This will be a live production with professional actors performing a mystery comedy titled, "The Case of the Missing Parents." Listeners will hear the actors perform, just like the old radio plays.

The radio play was written and directed by Ben Martin, a long-time member of the ESUUS Kansas City Branch. The radio play is hosted by the six ESUUS Branches in Region VI—Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Kentucky, and St. Louis.

A detective case to solve:

Daughter Myra Bradley's parents have been missing for four days. She receives a cryptic postcard in the mail from her parents which says, "We are attending a most glorious celebration. How perfectly marvelous it is to be able to mark this 100th anniversary. We are so looking forward to seeing our friends from Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Kentucky and St. Louis. Signed Momsy & Popsy." Myra is frantic. This is not like her parents to leave without letting her know. Myra hires a private detective to find her missing parents. The search begins. It is a fun mystery comedy with many twists and turns.

This is a free online program. The public is welcome. Registration information is available here.
