We would have preferred to debut What Comes Nest on stage.  But times being what they are, that wasn’t possible.  So, in the spirit of the classic style of 20th Century radio drama, we worked with Mr. Klavan to adapt his comedy for a listening audience.  We invite you to sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy this light-hearted exploration of the existence that may await us after we die.
