The Field, written by Elizabeth Benjamin, and directed by Lizzie Gottlieb and Nathan Dean: Glenn Kessler and Keira Naughton portray a couple in their newly purchased farmhouse; a tribe of Native Americans are unearthing tribal remains stemming from a massacre that took place on the land in the 1800s. A series of bizzare episodes have occurred in the farmhouse since the beginning of the ritual digging, and it takes a representative (portrayed by James Fall) to help the two make sense of it all.
The Field was the winner of the 2003 Gold Ogle Award for Best Fantasy/Horror/Mystery Audio Production of the Year presented by the American Society for Science Fiction Audio and the Minnesota Society for Interest in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Chaz, written and directed by Robert Grady. Chip Gudger, Axt, Matthew Mullin, and Grady play the respective roles in this original comedy detailing why there are four versions of Jesus' life story: no one can get along! Matthew is anal retentive, Mark and Luke are slow-witted gossips and John has spent most of his energy and time with a magistrate changing his name to Chaz so as not to be confused with John the Baptist.
The Love Song Of..., written by Lynn Rosen and directed by Eileen Myers. Polly Adams and Jen Albano are a mother and daughter waiting in the rain by Columbia University for their father to pick up for their Grandmother's birthday party. While wondering where Dad is, or if he will even come, the two make discoveries about the other that they never knew before.
David Shinn was the sound designer, while live sound effects were designed and performed by Sue Zizza. All three plays in the "We Have Ignition: 2003" series premiered in the months of June and July of 2003 on WNYE FM in New York City. Individual pieces have since aired on KPFA FM (servicing the San Francisco Bay Area), KFAI FM (St. Paul, Minnesota), and KUNM FM (New Mexico). All three pieces were part of the nationally syndicated series "The Radio Works."
The series is scheduled to re-commence in 2007 with the recording of Turn to Stone by Steve Tesher, with direction by Sue Zizza, a comedy-drama offering a different take on the origins of the first shot fired in the American Civil War. Axt has also expressed interest in directing a play by Los Angeles-based writer/actor/zen buddhist Algernon D'Ammassa. Axt is also developing a full-length work based on his stage play Chasing Dragons.
