Return to Dust (from Suspense)

Airing this Friday at noon on KKFI 90.1 FM is the FINAL weekly episode of Kansas City Actors Radio Theatre. From the Suspense Radio series comes “Return to Dust” by George Bamber, inspired by Richard Matheson’s novel “The Shrinking Man.”

James Howard has made an incredible scientific discovery. While attempting to create a bio-chemical agent that shrinks cancer cells, an inadvertent lab accident has caused James to shrink to only 1-foot tall, and he’s still shrinking! He is desperate to contact Dr. Bader, the only competent scientist who could reverse the process. Will Dr. Bader receive his message before James Howard returns to dust?

Featuring Walter Coppage, Kendra Keller, and Keenan Ramos. Directed by Gary Heisserer, sound design by Gianna Agostina, sound supervision by Mary Robinson, and hosted by John Rensenhouse.
