THE ROAD HOME News From Lake Wobegon

by | Read by Garrison Keillor

Audio Theater • 3.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2016

"Your anticipation makes what happens wonderful." That line from a Garrison Keillor monologue describes a Garrison Keillor monologue well. His slow delivery and gradual unfolding of characters and events are familiar to anyone who has listened to his radio show, "A Prairie Home Companion." Fans will anticipate the comic turns of phrase ("the guest room is a crucial element in a long-lasting marriage") in stories laced with dramatic elements. The lines themselves still come as surprises that guarantee a chuckle or laugh. Listeners may remember these monologues from years past, but they still resonate. The production includes a ghost story with Keillor touches, the last thoughts of a dead deer, and a guest speaker gig with a surprise for the comedian.
