RadioWest and Plan-B Theatre Company return with Radio Hour Episode 11. This year's radio drama takes on the holidays, with three stories adapted by local playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett. The first two are family-friendly classics: "The Little Match Girl" and "The Gift of the Magi." The last one though is a French Christmas legend about Hans Trapp, an anti-Santa character who cooks and eats the children who are naughty. It's called "The Black Knight."
