They are back!
Juha Jokela’s Esitystalous 3 – RADIO concludes the immensely popular Esitystalous (Performance Economy) trilogy. The play takes place at a radio station and offers, much like the earlier parts, an entertaining and sharp analysis of the present day.
Radio Stage is a local radio station founded in 2010 by the seasoned radio professional Jami (Martti Suosalo) for the Tapiola area in Espoo. During the past years this channel has become an important part of the town’s culture and has gained a small but loyal crowd of followers. There is only one problem: money. When the holding media group sends Marika (Vera Kiiskinen) to modernize the channel, disputes over power and values break out. The station’s characterful staff adjusts to the new way of thinking, but what happens to their jobs and Radio Stage’s unique voice?Näytä lisää
