Come see the amazing cast of Classic Radio Road Show perform a radio play version of what was Humphrey Bogart’s first major screen role. The Petrified Forest is set in the Arizona desert’s “Petrified Forest” at the Black Mesa BBQ and gas station. A disillusioned English writer traveling to the west coast falls in love with a young waitress there. She dreams of leaving the isolation of the desert to study art in France. But when Duke Mantee arrives with his gang, their lives are changed forever. Sherwood’s philosophical drama explores many themes that are current today, such as women’s rights and the environment.
