The Seven Deadly Sins

Enjoy seven short audio plays by Thornton Wilder where you want, when you want!

Wilder’s THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS play cycle, rarely produced in its entirety, includes seven one-act plays, each exploring one of the seven deadly sins. Widely varying in content and tone, the plays range from realism to postmodernism and feature such characters as classical Greek gods, St. Francis of Assisi, and even a Florida con artist duo.

This summer, we’ve adapted THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS into seven short (25 - 45 mins each) audio theatre pieces, which can be enjoyed together or separately for the most flexible listening experience. Follow the story while taking a stroll or taking a bath, the choice is yours! Listen on demand June 10 - 20.
