Silhouetted figures of the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Dorothy, and Scarecrow stare down the Yellow Brick Road. In the distance, we see a poppy field against an emerald sky. Text reads: "Midnight Radio: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".

Let us sweep you away to a land full of magic with a legendary crew of misfit friends where the weather is unpredictable, wickedness flies in from every direction, and a ‘great and powerful’ man behind a curtain is said to have all the answers.

WordPlay: A new spin on storytelling

WordPlay is a new spin on the age-old tradition of storytelling. With brazen honesty and creativity, actors, comedy writers, and everyday people read their own stories while our DJ spins a real-time soundtrack using anything from Brahms to Beyoncé. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll get an extremely intimate look into the life of a total stranger.

This hybrid storytelling sensation has been growing in popularity since its co-producer, Alan Olifson, brought it to Pittsburgh over 4 years ago. With its steadily growing audience and frequent media buzz, WordPlay has become a staple of Pittsburgh’s literary and theater scene.
