Styled after the tough-guy detectives of Raymond Chandler’s novels, this new radio play takes the tragic Greek hero down a couple pegs as he navigates today’s dark and dangerous streets. But this American Oedipus won’t accept his fate! Featuring an original jazz score by renowned bassist Jay Leonhart, Oedipus Noir was first performed before a live audience at the West End Gate in New York City. It was later broadcast in January 1994 on WBAI-FM in New York City.

About the Author

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua’s personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
