Established in 1996, Scenario Productions is a producer and publisher of original full cast audio entertainment in many genres including mystery, comedy and drama. Founded by its principal, Mark Bornstein, Scenario Productions has created a niche within the growing audio book industry with its unique approach to the medium.

Thanks to companies like Scenario Productions, the radio play format (which launched Orson Welles' career 60 years ago) is thriving. Take Scenario Productions' Brick Mallery, Private Investigator, a wise-cracking gumshoe who is a wonderful throw-back to Sam Spade, The Shadow and other powerful detective programs of the 1940s and '50s. The nature and subjects in this episodic adventure series make Brick Mallery, Private Investigator darker than those of his predecessors yet funnier and more satirical than his pulp roots.

In the first three, award-winning episodes of "Brick Mallery, Private Investigator" Scenario Productions combines a touch of suspense with an ample dose of humor, witticisms, puns, and clever analogies. Listeners are easily transported back to a time when old-style radio dramas were a primary source of entertainment. An abundance of action and murder keep listeners rivetted to the plot as they are engaged by thought-provoking dialogue and evocative sound enhancements.

Writer/Director Mark Bornstein is a great advocate of audio drama. "I think it's a terrific medium," says Bornstein. "Radio came first, and I think it's a more progressive medium than television. If you really listen to an audio drama or radio play, if you get lost in it, you can experience something in your mind that is far more sophisticated that what is shown on a television screen. In audio dramas you have music, you have sound effects, but mostly you have language. It's a very demanding medium for the writer as far as dialogue is concerned. But it's wonderful in that you can lead listeners to wherever their imaginations will go. Comedy and mystery work well together and Brick Mallery strikes the right sardonic and serio-comic tone."

With the first episodes of "Brick Mallery, Private Investigator," Scenario Productions has won critical acclaim in the United States and Canada. Scenario Productions has won two consecutive Publishers Weekly "Listen Up" Awards for Dramatized Production, 1997, and again for Best Audio Mystery, 1998 for "Brick Mallery, Private Investigator." Wildly enthusiastic reviews greeted "Brick Mallery, Private Investigator" in Billboard Magazine, New York Post, LA Times, Library Journal, AudioFile, Fright X, Mystery Review, to name a few.

Recently, Scenario productions has published a series of lost full-cast radio classics from the archives of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The first volumes in this series, are titled Mystery Theatre includes Mystery, Suspense and Horror with such titles as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart", Charles Dickens' "The Signal Man", Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Mr. Higginbottom's Catastrophe", W.W. Jacobs' "The Monkey's Paw," to name a few. Each half-hour episode comes to you with full cast, original orchestral score, fabulous sound effects. This is a rare glimpse into the world of vintage radio plays. These radio plays have not been heard since their original broadcast dates.

Stay tuned for more vintage radio plays from the archives of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, including "Adventure Theatre" and the "Stage Series" of the 1940s and '50s. The Stage Series was the flagship show on the CBC during the 40's and 50's.
The stars at that time were Lorne Greene, John Colicos, James Doohan, Mavor Moore, Lloyd Bochner, Jane Mallett, Lister Sinclair, Paul Kilgman, Barry Morse and John Drainie, who is one of the best radio actors of all time.

Plus a satirical jab at motivational and self-help speakers with "Dr. Gypsee Gunn's Demotivational Seminar."
