STARLINE 117 – SCIENCE FICTION STAGE PLAY
In this science fiction stage play, Edgar Stanson has been sitting in the same seat for two days in a small airport. When asked by security if he needs assistance he tells them he has arrived on Starline flight 117 and is waiting to be picked up by his driver.
Security tells him they will call his driver for him. He gives them the number to call. The phone number connects to a funeral home. When security go back to Edgar they find him dead.
They also find out that Starline was a small airline whose first flight 117 crashed twenty five years ago with no survivors. All bodies but one were found and they were taken to the funeral home which security called. Edgar Stanson has finally returned home.
“Starline 117” was produced as a radio play by Shoestring Theater Productions.
