SUSPENSE—Episode 8: An Ungentle Wager

Updated: Feb 3, 2022

By John C. Alsedek:

When I was a little boy, one of my very first memories was of watching the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. This episode definitely has a satirical Dark Shadows-vibe to it, which is helped out by the verbal sparring of Lizzie and Adrienne!

Episode 8: "An Ungentle Wager"

Stars: Elizabeth Gracen, Adrienne Wilkinson, Rocky Cerda, Christopher Duva, Dana Perry-Hayes, and Daamen Krall

When rival soap opera actresses come into conflict over a role, they decide to settle their long-standing feud with a bet involving a substantial check—and a very sharp axe.

Written especially for SUSPENSE by John C. Alsedek & Dana Perry-Hayes.


SUSPENSE writer, producer and radio-drama aficionado John C. Alsedek shares the history of early radio and television and the impact it has made on the world of entertainment in his ongoing series for Flapper Press.
