Coal Creek Community Theater of Louisville, CO presents Voice of the Prairie, written by John Olive and directed by Linda Orr. The play, spanning three decades, from 1895, through the early days of radio in 1923, centers on the adventures of Davey Quinn and Frankie, the Blind Girl, as re-told some 30 years later by the now middle-aged David Quinn. Quinn becomes famous sending his stories into the "Ethernet" through the infant industry of radio as "The Voice of the Prairie." Frankie hears Davey?s stories and reenters his life as the FCC threatens them all for broadcasting without a license.
