It's not easy providing the voices of today's divided America, but versatile narrator Peter Berkrot is up to the challenge. This thinly veiled cautionary tale tries to make sense of the contemporary political landscape. It features a battle for the soul of the small town of Bowling Green, Kentucky. On one side are the invaders, a blustery billionaire and his white-supremacist strategist whose goal is to take over the town. Their slogan: "Make Bowling Green Awesome." On the other side is a band of aware misfits, led by Frederick Douglass, time traveler. Berkrot skillfully creates distinctive voices that echo those of today's newsmakers without taking the easy way out of slapping Southern accents on all the locals. The result is a production that makes listeners laugh and think simultaneously. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
