  • (1888PressRelease) October 24, 2022 - “The Death Flyer” is a story about a young man who finds himself trapped aboard a ghost train attempting to save the life of a girl who died in its wreckage a decade ago.

    The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine talented actors, costumes, lighting, and sound effects to bring pulp-fiction stories written by L. Ron Hubbard in the 1930s and '40s to life.

    These stories come from the radio theatre era of radio programming in the United States before television, when radio was the dominant electronic home entertainment medium with dramatic shows and sound effects.

    A 1947 survey found that 82 out of 100 Americans were radio listeners. Various new entertainment formats and genres were created for the new medium: radio plays, mystery serials, soap operas, and more.

    “L. Ron Hubbard was a master storyteller who created dynamic, vivid stories that capture your attention and transport the reader across the globe through daring deeds,” said Amber Skjelset, the Center Manager.

    Skjelset added, “That's why people, no matter their age or walk of life, find something they love about his stories. They inspire imagination, and it doesn’t get people stuck into the screen-based entertainment which is so common today.”

    One regular attendee, Sophie, said about the shows, “I enjoy watching the live performances! They make you feel like you are there. The performers are so good, and they're really in character. It’s entertaining right to the very end!”

    L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers of the 20th century. Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard’s tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines—as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, Mr. Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.
