HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for fans, performers and producers of contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced performance, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more.

This four-day Festival offers a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art story-telling in theaters and other “listening” venues. HEAR Now presents audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation.

The 2017 HEAR Now Festival will again be a gathering place where the work of master storytellers is celebrated and shared.

Audio drama, audiobooks, recorded, and live story-telling -- sketches, poetry, spoken word -- alongside academic papers, juried competitions, and presentations on the physics of sound, as well as performance workshops, will round out this intensive listening event for the 2017 Hear Now Festival.

The following schedule is still ’under construction’ and subject to updates prior to June 6, 2017.

NATF Playhouse: Breakfast With Robin

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robin of Loxley is back in a new tale that brings him to modern day London. He meets both the 'sheriff' as well as a band of two merry persons. They rob from the rich, but the giving to the poor part is harder to define. Robin struggles with how different things are in the 21st century as compared to his own era, but is quick to believe cereal is the best invention of this new age -
followed closely by TV.

Meet producer Catherine Rinella of Midnight Audio Theater at this session.
