One woman desperately waits to hear from her lover.
One woman desperately tries to reach her husband.
Being ghosted didn't start with texting, and these dramatic readings from the 1940s explore how even though our technology is completely different, some things never change.
In "A Telephone Call" a woman tries not to come unhinged as she waits for a phone call her lover promised her would come two and a half hours ago. In "Sorry, Wrong Number" a woman confined to her bed cannot get a hold of her husband, but when the telephone wires cross and she overhears a murder plot, she fights tooth and nail to save a life.
