Soundstage broadcast for October 11, 2015

Tonight on Soundstage: Bliss by William Jess Russell, directed by Bonnie Agan.

Burt takes care of everyone’s grave in the cemetery except for Olivia, a teenaged girl who died in a car accident, making blood enemies of her brother Larry and her boyfriend Ham, who was driving. These three, along with two homeless men and a mysterious stranger, meet in the cemetery thirty years later. Will old hatreds lead to another tragedy?
