It is the 1940s when people traveled mostly by trains and amateur radio operators communicated across the globe using their ham radios to exchange messages and emergency communications. In this suspense drama Sparky and Jill, two orphans living in the Millford Orphans Home, have secretly built their own radio. One night they receive an emergency call that the train tracks have been washed out. It is up to them to get word to the train. Ground breaking in theme and style, this realistic youth play was produced by the Goodman Theatre and has since been produced across the country and abroad.
