It’s morning. You sip coffee while scrolling through social media posts. You see exotic places, far away people… And then suddenly, something looks familiar. Yes, it is an image of your neighbourhood; sunshine, tall trees, that interesting building at the corner of the street, the man that looks just like your neighbour walking his dog…
This picture makes you feel good. It makes you feel proud of the beautiful place you live in – Winnipeg. You like it and you want to share it with others.

One Trunk Theatre, together with the West End Cultural Centre and UMFM 101.5 present 204FM, a comedy radio series performed live weekly with broadcast to follow. 
A new episode debuts every Tuesday! 

Directed by Andraea Sartison.
Written by Gwendolyn Collins, RobYn Slade, Toby Hughes, Ross McMillan and William Jordan. Performed by the writers, Gord Tanner and guest musicians.

Each performance will feature an opening set by a guest musical act, followed by the radio play with live sound foley. Each episode will be broadcast on UMFM Fridays at 7:00 p.m. 

In the early 1900s unfortunate mistakes bind Hermes, the god of travel, in gold. Now a statue, Hermes is passed from one continent to the next, bringing bad luck and a feeling of “stuckness” everywhere he goes. World powers unite and decide to send him to a place in the middle of nowhere… Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

Hermes has perched atop the Legislature and we call him the golden boy, a statue reeking a feeling a apathy and not letting anyone leave. Enter regular Winnipeggers who are sucked into an adventure exploring the city and meeting a cast of characters, from the Grey Nuns to Burton Cummings, who give them a new perspective. 

A hilarious roller coaster ride through time, winters, socials, and mysteries, '204FM' is a uniquely Winnipeg buffet, created by top Winnipeg comedians and theatre artists for the citizens of our one great city.

May 4 Doors at 7:30, show 8 PM - 10:15 PM
The Park Theatre, 698 Osborne Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 2B9
