AS THE RIVER TURNS 

written and directed by Greg Triggs  

This episode is the first installment of an original continuing series. A sudser. Yes, a seller of soap, based in our Hamlet of Narrowsburg in the 1930s. 

That’s right a soap opera called, As The River Turns. This premiere episode is a chance for you to get to know some of the townsfolk. A primer, if you will. With sound and graphics by Alan Kehoe, original music by Heidi Mollenhauer and produced by Western Sullivan Public Library’s techwizard, Dale Blagrove. 

In Callicoon, Jeffersonville, and ... (Simple. Not rural. Small town.) Narrowsburg, New York, Time: the 1930s a hamlet within the Town of Tusten a place full of people you can trust in ... with a few notable suggestions. 

Time moves a little slower here depending on the mood of the river – a lady we call Delaware. 

But time doesn’t stop the humanity all around us! Join us for this monthly continuing series.

In our second episode, “Switchboard Switcheroo”. The professional rivalry betwee Miss Brooks and Daisy Enright extends into their personal lives. In fact to see these two English teachers engaged in one of their frequent verbal tiffs, either one would cut each other throat for a nickel. No, this isn’t so…And yet again… Hilarity rules!
