Man On The Ledge Publisher's Summary

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed Tales from Beyond the Pale, audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.

The series is produced by filmmakers Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, and Lisa Wisely.

In "Man On The Ledge," a man reflects on his life – and imminent death – while perched on a ledge overlooking Manhattan. Through a series of surprising reveals, what begins as a touching soliloquy on human fraility slowly devolves into a psychotic screed as our ledge-dweller’s misdeeds are slowly brought to light. Starring Vincent D’Onofrio as The Man on the ledge with Larry Fessenden as Bill Coley, the officer charged with talking him down. Featuring John Spredakos, Nick Damici and Greg Amici.
